“Teen Mom 2” star Jenelle Evans is speaking out following the death of her French bulldog allegedly shot and killed by her husband David Eason. On Tuesday, news about the death of the dog named Nugget being shot quickly circulated social media because “it snapped at” the couple’s two-year-old daughter Ensley Eason.
“I dont give a damn what animal bites my baby on the face… whether it be your dog or mine, a dog is a dog and I dont put up with that s–t at all. I’m all about protecting my family, it is my lifes mission,” David Eason wrote on Instagram.
“Some people are worth killing or dying for and my family means that much to me. You can hate me all you want but this isnt the first time the dog bit Ensley aggressively. The only person that can judge wether or not a animal is a danger to MY CHILD is ME.”
Eason posted a photo of the child which showed a red mark on her cheek.
According to Radar Online, the Columbus County Sheriff’s Department stated they had received a call on Tuesday, during which “it was relayed that the woman’s husband had killed her dog.”
On Wednesday, Janelle turned to Instagram to address the death of her dog.
“Nugget… I’m crying everyday. I love you so much and I’m so sorry. I’m speechless,” Jenelle wrote in her post. “You were my side kick and knew the moment I felt bad and would cuddle with me. You still had a lot to learn and a lot to grow from your lessons.”
“Everyday I wake up you’re not here, when I come home you’re not here, when I go to bed… you’re not here. You’re gone forever and there’s no coming back.”
Social media erupted, and most fans and followers were outraged about the shooting death of Nugget.
“What number can we call, or what can the public do to bring attention to this,” one person wrote. “This dog needs justice, and the children should NOT be in the home. What can we do?”
