Dog the Bounty Hunter tracked down troll giving him vile abuse and became pals

Dog the Bounty Hunter has revealed he once tracked down a social media troll who used names that could "send you to hell" – before becoming friends with the chap.

Speaking exclusively with the Daily Star, he told how he his toughest ordeal to date was losing his wife and co-star Beth to cancer.

Since the death of his love and co-star, Dog has been supported by fans as he grieves but has had some negative comments too.

But trolls should watch out because he often tracks down people who say bad things about him.

He explains: "When I was starting out, Dolly Parton taught me, 'Don't ever read the bad comments', so I try not to read hate mail, but when I do I like to find the people and ask them to meet me face to face.

"Recently there was this guy from West Virginia who was calling me the kind of names you can go to hell for, and I was in the area so I called him and asked him to go for lunch.

"He ended up buying me my food, and now I call him every week.

"He's become a friend. I don't think all trolls really mean it."

Beth passed away in June aged 51 while the pair were filming Dog's Most Wanted.

"It is the worst thing I have ever been through in my entire life," he said.

"It just feels terrible to lose a spouse and have your wife go before you.

"I've had to adjust – Beth isn't there anymore telling me to stay back or warning me a guy is about to shoot.

"But I'm no longer am afraid to die. I don't want to die, but I'm not scared anymore. When I go to catch somebody, I stick out my chest and go for it."

Dog's Most Wanted sees the ruthless bounty hunter on a mission to make America safe again, pursuing criminals on the run with the help of his family.

The final episode, called Farewell to a Queen, deals with Beth being put into a medically-induced coma as her symptoms worsen, with the Chapman family having to make the agonising decision to switch off her life support.

And while Dog initially wanted to stop filming the series, Beth, who once said, "If I'm gonna die, I'm gonna die in my boots", wanted to continue making the show.

"Fans will know from watching our shows that I could always recommend things to Beth, but I could never tell her what to do," says Dog.

"I told her we shouldn't do this series. If it was me in her position, there would be no way we would be filming and going out looking for guys.

"But she wanted to do it, and she says it in Dog's Most Wanted when she goes 'this is not Big Daddy’s idea, this is mine'. She chose to do that.

"Viewers can expect a lot of tears, but there's laughter too and a lot of action."

Dog’s Most Wanted is on Thursdays weekly at 9pm exclusively on Blaze.
