Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans has been cut from the program after husband David Eason shot and killed their pet dog.
MTV confirmed Tuesday afternoon that the program ceased filming Evans last month due to the incident. The network had already cut ties with Eason, who also starred on the show until he unleashed a homophobic barrage of Tweets in 2018.
Evans honored the dog in an Instagram post with a caption that read, “Nugget…I’m crying everyday [sic]. I love you so much and I’m so sorry. I’m speechless.”
The Grizzly Details
Eason decided to execute the French bulldog after it reportedly bit two-year-old daughter Ensley on the face. Before taking the dog into the woods, Eason is said to have slammed the dog on the couple’s back deck.
Rumors about the slain pup started last week and were essentially confirmed when Eason posted a video of Nugget being aggressive toward Ensley with the caption, “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**t at all. 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.”
Local animal control officials did visit the residence but apparently left without speaking the couple due to ‘No Trespassing’ signs posted on the property.
