There was a time when the saddest thing news I could imagine about Dog the Bounty Hunter’s fifth wife Beth Chapman might be that she dyed her I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter-colored hair a bland boxed dye brown. Today we have actual, legitimate sad news pertaining to Beth. TMZ reports that Beth’s health has taken a turn, and she’s currently in a medically-induced coma.
51-year-old Beth was diagnosed with stage II throat cancer back in September 2017. The cancer was reportedly removed, but then returned in 2018, at which point she began chemotherapy. She was hospitalized back in November due to complications from her throat cancer diagnosis, and again last month. That last visit was reportedly because Beth had trouble breathing. Yesterday TMZ reported that Beth had been taken to a Hawaiian hospital (she and Dog live in Honolulu) and is currently in a medically-induced coma. Sources say that Beth was hospitalized this weekend because of another breathing issue.
Sources say that a 911 call was placed, claiming that there was a “choking” emergency. Family members are reportedly on their way to the hospital, where some are already by Beth’s side. Dog is asking for people to pray for Beth.
Please say your prayers for Beth right now thank you love you

Dog and Beth recently just announced a new WGN America TV show called Dog’s Most Wanted, which was supposed to premiere soon, but has been pushed back to next year. No reason was given for the delayed date, but my guess is it might have had something to do with Beth’s health. As you can see from the trailer, part of the story was to focus on Beth’s battle with cancer.
In the trailer, Dog says that he’s out bounty hunting while his wife Beth is fighting cancer, because he just loves nabbing assholes that much. I really hope that Dog has put his bounty hunting business on hold while Beth is in the hospital. Dog, you work’s just not worth it, dawg. As long as inland Florida still exists, there will always be warrant-dodging trash on the run for you to catch.
