'Teen Mom' star Jenelle Evans' husband David Eason has shot and killed their pet dog and defended the move claiming that he did it to protect the family.
David admitted to killing the family's French bulldog Nugget because it allegedly bit the couple's two-year-old daughter Ensley. He shared a video that appears to show the dog snapping at Ensley as she moves close to Nugget's face for a kiss, reported TMZ.
Earlier, it was reported that Jenelle had reportedly fled her home with two of her children after David shot and killed her pet dog, confirmed by a frantic 911 phone call made by an unidentified male on Tuesday, April 30.
The anonymous caller spoke to the emergency personnel about David shooting the pet dog, and it was Columbus County Sheriff's Department that responded to the couple's rural property, known as "The Land". "A call was made today, and it was relayed that the woman's husband had killed her dog," the Sheriff’s Department told Radar Online.
Fans had guessed that something was terribly wrong with the reality TV star and her husband after the JE Cosmetics founder posted a cryptic status on Facebook: "Jenelle Eason is feeling devastated." She also posted videos that showed her listening to Ariana Grande's 'In My Head', which is a breakup song from her album 'Thank U, Next', prompting speculations that the couple, who tied the knot in September 2017, have broken up.
According to reports, the MTV star and David had been "fighting really badly" and Jenelle was "over" the relationship, which prompted her to post the Facebook message. According to an insider, Jenelle "doesn’t feel safe with David" in the wake of the pet killing and "is scared and terrified" of her husband.
"David shot the dog. It snapped at [their two-year-old daughter] Ensley and that prompted David to shoot it," a source said, which David later confessed. After the incident, a terrified Jenelle reportedly fled the family home with Kaiser and Ensley, only to return for a short time to pack a bag.
Jenelle doesn't seem to be on the same page as her husband at all. She shared a photo on Instragram of Nugget sitting in the car with her, along with a message suggesting she believes they should have simply trained the dog to stop biting.
"Nugget… I’m crying every day. I love you so much and I’m so sorry. I’m speechless. You were my sidekick 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. Every day 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. #Heartbroken #Distraught."
However, the 'Teen Mom 2' actress has now refuted all claims of running away from home in the wake of her husband killing her pet dog in a series of tweets posted on her social media account. "Everyone just please leave me be right now, I don't need any more f**king drama!"
In another tweet, she wrote, "I didn't 'run away from home'. Haven't been home all day and been busy taking care of my kids and myself. Had no idea any visitors came by my house… still, don’t know what happened at my house. Please stop making up rumors. I haven't spoken to any media and still not. Bye." She finally concluded her rants writing, "Until I speak about a situation don't assume a damn thing about me. #Truth."
