The TV show featuring Dog the Bounty Hunter is now canceled. Beth and Duane Chapman had Dog and Beth canceled not because of reduced popularity, but because they feel there is a greater need than running down fugitives from the law. The couple says the cash bail bonds industry is under attack, which in part means the entire bounty hunter industry is under attack in the United States. As a solution, Beth announced her candidacy for the presidency of the Professional Bail Agents of the United States (PBUS).

“Our industry is under attack,” Beth explained. “There are bail reform movements springing up across the country that would end the cash bail systems. This would be a disaster.”
Speaking to InTouch Weekly, Beth Chapman said she will now be on the hunt for finding any way from preventing the bail reform movement from implementing new laws where the cash bail bonds system is tossed out. For example, California’s bail bonds system was recently declared unconstitutional, yet the PBUS has not challenged the legal system in the courts.
