TMZ: Duane 'Dog' Chapman's Parrot That Could Imitate Late Wife Beth's Words Has Died
Duane "Dog" Chapman has suffered another loss as the African grey parrot his late wife, Beth, gifted him years ago has passed away.
While Duane "Dog" Chapman is still coming to terms with the death of his wife, Beth Chapman, TMZ has reported that the bounty hunter has suffered another loss. According to the site, the African grey parrot that Beth gifted him several years ago has died.
The female parrot, whose name was Baby Bird, died on Wednesday morning just days after she started plucking her feathers. It was reported that Dog believed that the cold weather in Colorado might have led to her death.
It appears that Dog is ready for another chance at love as he shared the news of his engagement to his girlfriend, Francie Frane, via Twitter.
TMZ's sources claim that since Beth gifted the bird to her man a few years ago, she had started imitating how the late reality star said "hello" while also saying phrases like "Bail Bonds."
It would be recalled that Beth died at the age of 51 during her battle with throat cancer. According to Hollywood Reporter, the bounty hunter was put into a medically induced coma some days before she passed on after a two-year health crisis
Although the cancer was previously removed, Dog and Beth told viewers of the A&E exclusive, "Dog & Beth: Fight of Their Lives," that it had come back.
Beth was subsequently hospitalized in April 2019 due to an "accumulation of fluid in her lungs," which led to an "emergency procedure to alleviate pressure."
In May of the same year, Beth told a congregation at The Source Church in Bradenton, Florida, that she had put an end to her chemotherapy treatment and was placing her faith in God. By June, Dog announced through his Twitter that the 51-year-old was dead.
Beth and Duane met in 1986 when Beth was 19 years old, and they went on to date each other on-and-off for a decade, despite getting married to other people within that period.
They eventually settled down together in 1995 and got married on 20 May 2006 in Hawaii. The couple shares two children together, Bonnie and Garry, although they did have children from previous relations.
The bounty hunter tweeted an exclusive interview with The U.S. Sun on his account also some photos of him and Francie together, showing off the engagement ring.
