Animal Control has questions for Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans and David Eason after he admitted to murdering her dog Nugget, TMZ reports. Eason reportedly shot her French bulldog after the dog nipped at Ensley, 2, and animal welfare has been flooded with calls since he posted a video on Instagram discussing the incident.
TMZ reports that the Attorney General has received 138 complaints as well, which they’ve turned over to Animal Control. It is unclear what legal action will be taken, though Eason is known for not responding well to visits from police. He posted a series of videos after he claimed Secret Service agents drove to his property, and showed off a cache of ammo.
When the did show up,TMZ reports that Animal Control officers were intimidated by the “No Trespassing” signs and a grey pit bull waiting on the porch. Sources tell the website that officers left the property and alerted the sheriff’s department.
Sources say before shooting Nugget, Eason beat the dog and threw it across the kitchen. A source tells the site that the dog cried as Eason beat Nugget, but the people at home were too afraid of him to try to intervene. He was reportedly “covered in blood” after the attack.
Evans, meanwhile, is reportedly considering divorcing Eason over the incident, and MTV has officially cut ties with him.
After killing the family dog Nugget for behaving aggressively toward their daughter Ensley, David Eason admits that he needs help, TMZ reports. He is married to MTV’s Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans, who was reportedly traumatized by the incident, and is considering divorce.
An official at the Columbus County Sheriff’s Department characterized Eason as “the most dangerous person” in three counties, but adds that their hands are tied unless Evans press charges.
Eason is reportedly under investigation for animal cruelty. Meanwhile, advertisers on the popular MTV show are pulling funds from the show, People reports. One is a pet health company named Greenies. They tweeted: “We have zero tolerance for animal cruelty. We can now confirm that, as a result of this incident, our GREENIES ads will no longer run during Teen Mom programming.”
Meanwhile, Persil ProClean tweeted, “We are no longer advertising on Teen Mom 2,” and Chipotle shared, “We are no longer airing our ads during episodes of Teen Mom.”
Twix and Dove Chocolate also pulled funds. Here are some comments from social media:
