‘Teen Mom’ fans urge Jenelle Evans to leave David Eason after he reportedly shoots and kills her dog

Jenelle Evans’s fans fear for her safety following a report that her husband, David Eason, shot and killed their dog Nugget.

The Teen Mom 2 star paid tribute to her sidekick on Wednesday, writing that she’s “speechless” and “crying every day” over his death. She added that she is “heartbroken” and “distraught” over it.

What she didn’t say is whether her husband, whose gun-crazed videos caught the attention of the Secret Service and homophobic tweets got him fired from his wife’s long-running MTV show, killed the French bulldog. However, Us Weekly claims he did.

An insider told the magazine that “David shot the dog” Tuesday at their North Carolina home.

“The dog snapped at [their 2-year-old daughter] Ensley and that prompted David’s decision to shoot it,” the source told the magazine.

Eason recently shared a video of the dog at a playground:

The report stated that Evans’s 4-year-old son with ex Nathan Griffith, Kaiser, was also there at the time of the incident, but her eldest son, Jace, 9, was on vacation with Evans’s mom Barbara.

The magazine went on to report that Evans, 27, left the house she shares with her 30-year-old husband. She allegedly “doesn’t feel safe” and “is scared and terrified” of him following the incident.

The tabloid Radar Online confirmed with the Columbus County Sheriff’s Department that they received a 911 call saying a “woman’s husband had killed her dog.” They were investigating and promised an incident report would soon be filed. (Yahoo has reached out to a police spokesperson and will update this story.)

While Evans had posted the tribute to Nugget, she has stopped short of putting the blame on Eason for the dog’s death. In a series of fiery tweets on Wednesday, she said she wanted to be left alone because she doesn’t need “anymore f***ing drama.”

Some of the tweets have coarse language:

Evans’s fans haven’t been big supporters of Eason due to several incidents, including police being called to their home in October after a fight. The couple also had a huge blowout the night before they were married in 2017. Eason recently was behind the production of Teen Mom 2 being shut down because he threatened to show up any time they were filming her scenes despite being banned from the show. Fans are now fearful for the safety of Evans and her sons — with more than one worrying that the next gun incident could involve her.

“You really should run far and fast with your children,” one person commented today on one of Eason’s last social media posts. “It won’t be a family pet next time.”

Other commenters wrote, “Jenelle needs to get rid of you” and told her that this should “be your wake up call.”

Of course, Evans had her own much-publicized gun incident last year, when she pulled out her own handgun during a road rage incident with one of her kids in the car.
