Update: Trapper passed away Dec. 2019.
I am pleased to confirm that despite rumors to the contrary in January of 2016, Trapper from the television series “Mountain Monsters” is alive and well.
A publicist for Discovery Communications, Inc. and “Mountain Monsters” confirmed he is in good health after a cliff hanger during one of the episodes left fans worried he had passed away.
“I’m happy to confirm that Trapper is alive and well,” a publicist for the network said. “At the end of the 2016 season premiere, there was a cliffhanger revealing that Trapper had a medical emergency. In reality Trapper’s health scare occurred last spring, and fans will see in this weekend’s episode that he is now in recovery and on the mend!”
Comments and messages of condolences were left on my blog from several years ago, Mountain Monsters: The inside scoop. I’m not sure why so many folks were sure Trapper had passed away, but I’m happy to report he is doing well.
“Please let your readers know that his health will be addressed in the episode airing this Saturday, Jan. 30 at 10/9c,” the same publicist requested.
As with everything on the Internet, it is important check your facts closely before starting rumors, that’s why I went directly to a publicist for the network on which the series airs.
I’m thankful she was willing to share his health status and confirm he is “alive and well.”
