Famed Bounty Hunter Comes Clean On Cancellation Of TV Show

Dog the Bounty Hunter and his wife have now revealed their reasoning for the cancelation of their reality show.

Duane “Dog” Chapman and his wife Beth are well-known for their show on their A&E show “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” which began in 2004. Just a few years later, the show was taken off the air after a video of Duane repeatedly using a racial slur surfaced. But then the show returned in 2008 and stayed on-air until it was canceled in 2012 after a total of eight seasons.

The following year, Duane and Beth created another show but this time with CMT, “Dog and Beth: On the Hunt.” That show lasted until 2015; in January 2016, Beth announced that she and her husband were leaving CMT. The Chapmans revealed the real reason behind the departure: the Chapmans decided to attempt to save the American bail industry.
The Chapman’s decided run for president….of the Professional Bail Agents of the United States, a campaign that Beth Chapman won.

Beth said her reason was that, “Our industry is under attack. There are reform movements springing up across the country that would end the cash bail systems. This would be a disaster. I worked with the California Bail Agents Association to get them on as interveners in the case so that the industry can mount a significant challenge to this incredibly disastrous suit. The bail industry provides a service to the government and helps ensure the public’s safety. Removing the bail system would have a deleterious effect on the criminal justice system. It is imperative that our association, under strong leadership, fight every attempt by these social justice lackeys to remove cash bail when their only goal is to make it easier for the bad guys to get out of jail.”

Duane added his own thoughts on the issue.

For over 12 years we have shown on TV the importance of the bail industry in assisting the criminal justice system, and I have preached about how important it is that bail agents and bounty hunters conduct themselves properly,” he told InTouch. “We made this incredibly tough decision because we feel that without intervention from all of our associations, we will no longer have an industry in which to work. This is not an end to Dog the Bounty Hunter, but if these lawyers have their way, it will be the end of the bail system in the United States and we cannot sit by and let that happen.”
