A MOTHER-OF-FOUR who overcame cancer is now hunting America’s most dangerous criminals - to pay off an $800,000 medical debt. Former waitress Shanda Zapata, 35, from Denver, Colorado, turned to bounty hunting three years ago after overcoming the killer disease for the second time. The self-confessed soccer mom spends her spare hours capturing fearsome fugitives, including members of motorcycle gangs and the Mexican Mafia. But with 10 per cent of $1m bounties on offer - the risk is worth the reward.
