Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans says she’s considering divorcing her husband David Eason after he fatally shot the family’s pet French bulldog outside of their North Carolina home after the dog had behaved aggressively toward their toddler, Ensley.
‘David killed my dog Nugget because he snapped at my two-year-old, Ensley,’ Evans, 27, told Us on Wednesday. ‘He doesn’t put up with that and those are his beliefs. He just took her and shot her in the woods … about two acres away from the house.’
Evans said she’s focusing ‘on what’s best for me and my kids,’ as ‘at this time, we are dealing with this rough situation’ which took place Tuesday.

Jenelle said that she’s had ‘thoughts’ of divorcing Eason, ‘but nothing is finalized,’ adding that ‘David and I are not on talking terms.’
The mom-of-three – to two-year-old daughter Ensley with Eason, 30; and sons Jace, nine, and Kaiser, four, from past relationships – said she remained ‘still shocked and upset’ over the death of the family pet.
‘I’m too hurt and upset at the fact he did that. It’s taking time to get over this whole situation, and it’s making me feel he’s very cruel and doesn’t have a heart on many ends.’
Evans said that her two younger children ‘were inside and just got done playing’ at the time Eason shot the dog,

Evans said her mother Barbara has taken her oldest child Jace on a cruise, so he wan’t at home.
‘Kaiser and Ensley had no idea,’ Evans said, adding that the children have not ‘said anything about it since.’
Eason’s daughter with his ex-wife Whitney Johnson, Maryssa, 11, was also impacted in the incident, according to Evans, as she ‘immediately went to her bedroom and didn’t come out all night until the next day.’
The MTV star asked for privacy amid the difficult time, telling the outlet that she ‘would like for everyone to just give [her] … time right now to figure things out and clear [her] head.’

No regrets: Eason said that the incident ‘amounted to picking people over animals’
Earlier Wednesday, Eason said she’s ‘crying everyday’ in the wake of her pet’s death, which left her heartbroken and distraught.
She posted a picture of herself with a shot of the pooch, writing, ‘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.’
Eason, who has been married to Evans for more than a year-and-a-half, took to Instagram with a bold message that made clear he had zero regrets about his actions in the incident, which he said amounted to picking people over animals.
‘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*** at all,’ he wrote. ‘I’m all about protecting my family, it is my lifes 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 isnt the first time the dog bit Ensley aggressively. ‘The only person that can judge [whether] or not a animal is a danger to MY CHILD is ME.’
A welfare check was conducted Tuesday at the family home amid ‘complaints concerning an incident involving an animal at this location,’ officials with the Columbus County Sheriff’s Department told USA TODAY in a statement. ‘The deputy confirmed that the occupants of this residence were OK. There was no evidence to substantiate further investigation.’
