Jenelle Evans’ husband, David Eason admitted to shooting and killing the ‘Teen Mom 2’ star’s adorable french bulldog, and she took to Instagram to reveal how absolutely ‘distraught’ she is about the situation.
UPDATE 5/2/19: A Sheriff’s Dept. report obtained by HollywoodLife.com reads: “On April 30, 2019, at approximately 7:30 pm, Columbus County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to 1726 Money Hole Road in Riegelwood in reference to a welfare check on an occupant of the residence. Columbus County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to the location but were unable to make contact with anyone at the residence. A deputy was dispatched to the residence this morning for follow up contact. The deputy made contact with the homeowner, Mr. Eason. The deputy confirmed that the occupants of this residence were okay. There was no evidence to substantiate further investigation.”
“We have received complaints concerning an incident involving an animal at this location. Columbus County Sheriff’s Office has contacted Columbus County Animal Control in reference to these complaints. If you have information concerning the mistreatment of animals, please contact Columbus County Animal Control at (910) 641-3945.”
In a separate release the department said “On May 1, the Columbus County Sheriff’s Office and Columbus County Animal
Control initiated a joint investigation into allegations of animal cruelty that reportedly occurred at a residence on Money Hole Road in Riegelwood. The investigation is ongoing. No further details will be released at this time to preserve the integrity of the investigation.”
UPDATE 5/1/19 AT 1:05 P.M. ET: The Columbus CountySheriff’s Dept. confirmed to TMZ that they will not be further investigating this situation. Jenelle would need to file a police report of her own in order for officials to get involved, according to the site. Her Instagram post is not enough to get them to investigate, either — she would need to file an official report.TMZ also reports that police DID respond to a 911 call at David and Jenelle’s home on April 30, but it was just to perform a welfare check on Ensley, and they found that she was okay.
“Nugget I’m crying everyday,” Jenelle Evans wrote on Instagram May 1, alongside a photo of herself and her dog, Nugget. “I love you so much and I’m so sorry. I’m speechless. 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. 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.” She completed her post with two crying emojis and a broken heart.
Jenelle’s post came just hours after it was first reported that David had shot and killed the french bulldog because it “snapped” at the pair’s two-year-old daughter, Ensley. David confirmed the reports on May 1, just before Jenelle’s own post about Nugget. “I don’t 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 don’t put up with that s*** at all,” he wrote. “I’m all about protecting my family, it is my life’s mission. 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 isn’t the first time the dog bit Ensley aggressively. The onle person that can judge weather [sic] or not an animal is a danger to MY CHILD is ME.”
Along with the message, David also posted a video that showed the dog appearing to chomp at Ensley’s face, and a picture that showed her with tears in her eyes and a red welt on her face. The toddler can also be heard crying after the apparent attack in the video, which you can see below.

Nugget… I’m crying everyday. I love you so much and I’m so sorry. I’m speechless. 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. #Heartbroken #Distraught 😓😪💔

Along with the initial reports that David had killed the dog, it was also rumored that Jenelle had taken Ensley and one of her other children, Kaiser, and fled her home because she was “terrified” of David. She took to Twitter to refute those reports, although she did not make it clear what the status of her relationship with David is.
“Everyone just please leave me be right now, I don’t need anymore f***ing drama,” she wrote on April 30. “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.”
