National Geographic’s Wild Channel The Incredible Dr. Pol is a show that has garnered plenty of followers even though it’s not one that has been without its fair share of controversy. That said, the show has always managed to keep fans coming back because of amazing people like Dr. Elizabeth Grammar, who was, to the surprise of many, suddenly dropped from the show.

Dr. Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, Elizabeth became a reality TV star thanks to her appearance on the National Geographic show Wild. Ever since his absence from the show, fans have kept asking what happened to the beloved doctor.

Background Details and Rise to Fame

It was in 1973 that Elizabeth Grammar was born in Lamar County, Georgia. Although there is no information regarding his parents and siblings, it is known that his interest in animals started from childhood. This is due to the fact that she was raised on a farm with many animals that she loved to take care of. This would later become his main motivation for studying veterinary medicine.

For her education, Grammar went to the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine, where she graduated. She began her career as a technician in a large animal veterinary clinic.

She then had the opportunity to appear in the TV series documentary, The Incredible Dr. Pol, along with others, such as Dr. Brenda Grettenberger and Dr. Emily. However, she didn’t stay long before finally disappearing from the show. In her short stint on the show, she garnered some big fans for herself.

What happened to Dr. Elizabeth?

Towards the end of 2016, Elizabeth Grammar and her husband, Robert Jason Grammer, were caught up in a very tragic event that claimed her husband’s life while she was hospitalized.

In the strange and tragic event, it was reported that Robert who had been a welder for many years drank too much (beer and vodka) that day. He asked her for medicine and, with her knowledge of medicine, she gave him butorphanol, a Schedule IV narcotic. Shortly after, he stopped responding.

Robert Grammer was rushed to Monroe County Hospital before he was taken to Macon Medical Center. There he remained alive for some time before his final departure and he died on December 30, 2016. Grammar, born on November 2, 1968, was 48 years old at the time of his death. He was buried at Coggins Funeral Home in Thomaston on January 2, 2017.

Robert was raised by his parents, Dell Land Harris and Terry Grammar, with siblings Terrie Rosborough, Shelby Reid and a brother who predeceased him, Joseph Wade Grammar.

Even before Robert was taken off life support, another tragedy was averted when, on December 28, 2017, Elizabeth Grammar was found to be unresponsive in her home. She was found by Dep. Cynthia Patten who was sent to the residence. Dr Elizabeth was found with an IV in her arm and the IV bag hanging from the ceiling in what was believed to be a suicide attempt.

The grammar was then rushed to Monroe County Hospital. It was there that she recovered before being transferred to the psychiatric ward at Macon Medical Center, where her husband was still in intensive care.

According to the sheriff of Lamar County where the couple lived, the case was going to be assigned to the office of Jonathan Adams, who was a prosecutor, so that he could decide the charges that would be brought against her. However, nothing about the case has been made public since.

Elizabeth Grammar and her late husband had children, including Kourtney Jones, Kaeli (Cody) Gibson, Nick (Sloan) Grammar and Nelson (Jeannie) Grammar.

Why did she leave Dr. Pol?

Since her departure from the show, there has yet to be a formal statement regarding why she left the show. However, this may not be unrelated to the tragedies that befell her as well as her personal issues.

Based on speculation, she may also have some legal battles over the substance abuse and attempted suicide case. If the cases are ongoing, they could result in a year or more of investigations before his fate is known.
