Bounty hunters chase US fugitives

Bounty hunting is a big business in the US, one of only two nations in the world where it's still legal.


    The name bounty hunter evokes images of the American movies, the wild west and good guys catching the baddies for a few dollars more.

    But bounty hunting is still big business in the US as fugitives who have jumped bail are hunted down.
