"Dog the Bounty Hunter" star Duane "Dog" Chapman urges fans to stay safe during this time of uncertainty as the COVID-19 pandemic is spreading at an alarming rate. 


Duane "Dog" Chapman took to Instagram to address his fans regarding the recent coronavirus pandemic. He warned fans to exercise caution, advising them to stay indoors, wash their hands, and practice social distancing while out in public. 

A fan had initially posted the same post from his account after he met the reality star during lunch hours and shared it on his social media profile. 



In the snap, Chapman posed side-by-side with the evidently elated fan. Alongside the snap, the fan urged everyone to be safe on the reality star's behalf and claimed that the "bounty hunter" was still catching bad guys. 

The fan also revealed that he got an opportunity to have lunch with Chapman, and they talked for some time. The excited fan further wrote, "Gotta love The Dog."


Chapman, along with a lot of other celebrities, has taken up the initiative to make their fans realize the gravity of the situation regarding the recent outbreak via social platforms like Instagram and Twitter. 


Despite the global urgency surrounding the virus, the reality star had taken to Instagram earlier this week to promote his upcoming shows coming out later this year. 


The 67-year-old and his team have been advising fans to self-isolate in order to avoid spreading the deadly pandemic and encouraging fans to stay home as far as practicable. 

However, the former bail bondsman has not backed out on sharing his excitement of visiting the UK later this year to have a meet and greet with his fans. In a recent Instagram story, he announced that he would be making his first-ever appearance in Scotland. 



After Chapman posted the snap from the Dream Pastries in Castle Rock, Colorado, on his Instagram, his daughter Lyssa Chapman, begged her father to take his own advice. 

The worried daughter shared a tweet that read, "in an unsettle reversal of my teenage years, I am now yelling at my parents for going out," before getting right to the point asking her father to stay home.
