Somebody with some massive cojones is threatening the Arnold Schwarzenegger of reality-TV.
Duane “Dog” Chapman of the A&E series “Dog the Bounty Hunter” and his family have been getting some disturbing email death threats. An FBI investigation is underway to get to the bottom of who’s behind the messages.
According to Radar Online, the threats were sent over the course of four days.

A message from April 30 reads, "I'm going to murder you. I'm going to come to Hawaii and murder you and your family in cold blood. You are next on my list and are the bane of society. I will deliver you to God."
Mentioned in the obscene and terrifying emails include themes of murder, rape, kidnapping, and sexual mutilation.
A spokesperson for the Chapmans tells Hollyscoop, the family is taking the threats seriously and are “very concerned” about their safety.
“Duane Chapman said that when the person responsible is found, he will prosecute to the full extent of the law for the threats made against his family,” the spokesperson told Hollyscoop.
The case has been referred to the FBI in Honolulu where the family lives. Further details are not being released.
If you aren’t familiar with Dog’s show, he and the rest the Jesus-loving family deals with some seriously shady characters. “Dog The Bounty Hunter” – now in its seventh season - follows the family’s bounty hunting business as they chase down and capture fugitives.
New episodes of “Dog” start up again on June 2 at 9/8c on A&E.
