25 Most Dangerous Jobs in the World

17. Bounty Hunters


Bounty hunters, sometimes referred to as bail enforcement agents, are often tasked with chasing violent criminals who skip bail. Given that the pay is very low, you can bet that bounty hunters don’t do it for the pay, but rather for pleasure. However, they still earn their fee by getting a percentage from the bail jumper’s bond, which presumably shows that the higher the bond, the more dangerous their target is.

Unlike police officers, bounty hunters aren’t allowed to carry firearms in many countries. They therefore, potentially find themselves outgunned by bail jumpers they’re supposed to capture. Remember, these bail jumpers are notorious criminals who would do anything, including killing, just to guarantee their freedom.
