A pair of professional bounty hunters will bring Montana fugitives to justice on a new season of a television show on Animal Planet.
Mike “Animal” Zook and Rob “Daddy Rat” Hoyt are among the recovery agents that the second season of “Rocky Mountain Bounty Hunters” revolves around.
Each episode follows the bounty hunters as they track fugitives who are accused of committing crimes ranging from drug trafficking to assault to arson across the Rocky Mountain west.
The reality series was filmed on location in Missoula and Kalispell.
Zook and Hoyt have worked as bounty hunters for the past 10 years after meeting each other at a biker bar. The two started a bail-bond business before turning to finding criminals on the lam and becoming recovery agents for other bail bond agencies across Montana and Idaho.
The new season of “Rocky Mountain Bounty Hunters” airs Sundays starting Jan. 11 on Animal Planet, with each hourlong episode beginning at 7 p.m. The first season, which aired starting in April, averaged 766,000 viewers per episode.
