Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman and his wife Beth stunned fans this week when they announced that their hit CMT reality show “Dog and Beth: On the Hunt” is coming to an end after three seasons.
The Chapmans reportedly told InTouch that they made the decision to end the show themselves in order to save the bail industry, which they claim is under attack.
“Our industry is under attack,” Beth said, according to Fox News. “There are bail reform movements springing up across the country that would end the cash bail systems. This would be a disaster.”
Beth went on to reveal that she will be running for president of the Professional Bail Agents of the United States (PBUS).
“The bail industry provides a service to the government and helps ensure the public’s safety,” she said.
Duane Chapman made it clear that he agrees with his wife.
“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 said. “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.”
