On last week’s episode, Billy Brown, 64, and four of his seven children bought a brown milking cow named Sabrina from the local town of Hoonah to help the “wild” clan become more “independent” in their Browntown village.
But according to a local Washington newspaper, the Discovery Channel hit series’ crew set up the entire shot — and then got rid of the poor cow!
In August, Edelweiss Dairy owner Hans Wolfisberg was “first contacted by producers of the show,” the Lynden Tribune article reported. “They were in need of a cow, and the Wolfisbergs were in supply.”
And then, rather than welcome Sabrina into the family as it appeared on the show, the clan just gave her away.
“After moving to Alaska, Sabrina would stay with the Brown family for a month while video footage was shot, before being adopted by an Alaskan local to live out the remainder of her life,” the article continued.
Sadly, the family is notorious for misrepresenting their lives on camera.
In a more shocking example, the Billy and son Bam Bam — who claim to be lifelong Alaskan citizens — plead guilty to lying about their state residency on official government forms. The men admitted to actually spending much of their time in the mainland U.S.
And when the clan does stay in Alaska, they often sleep in hotels rather than their homemade village, locals told RadarOnline.com last year.
