That didn’t last long. Despite contemplating divorce, Jenelle Evans returned home to her husband David Eason only days after he fatally shot the family dog.

As Radar reported, David shot the family’s dog Nugget after he nipped their daughter Ensley, 2. Jenelle fled to her friend Jamie’s home, even admitting that she is “considering” divorce.
But over the weekend, Jenelle posted photos from the North Carolina home she shares with David.
“Where else would she go?” a source close to Jenelle, 27, told Radar. “She has a farm to take care of. She’s back to the house to take care of the kids. How do you expect her to leave?”
Still On The Outs
The insider insisted that although Jenelle has returned, she is “not back with him.”
“He needs to get a job, which is what he promised her,” the source said. “They’re trying to work on the relationship. They are getting a marriage counselor. They need time to work on the marriage.”
Although David is “not scared he’s going to be arrested,” Jenelle is “worried,” as she has court in late May over custody of son Kaiser, 4, with ex Nathan Griffith. She is also being Investigated by Child Protective Services.
Who Needs MTV?
Radar reported MTV is “planning to fire Jenelle” over the incident. “No word on the network,” the source said. “She’s not fired as of right now, that’s for sure. I don’t think they would fire her. We have other options if she gets fired.”
Radar exclusively reported that David shot the dog dead. Authorities responded to the home after an unidentified male placed the call on Tuesday, April 30. Public Information Officer Michele Tatum told Radar that no arrests were made at the time.
Tatum told Radar on Monday, May 6 that the “investigation is ongoing.”
David admitted to shooting the family dog in an Instagram post. “I don’t give a damn what animal bites my baby on the face,” he captioned a video of the incident that led to the shooting. “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. You can hate me all you want but this isn’t the first time the dog bit Ensley aggressively. “The only person that can judge whether or not an animal is a danger to MY CHILD is ME.”
Jenelle responded to the incident by posting a selfie with her late pooch. “Nugget… I’m crying everyday,” she wrote. “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.”
Scared To Leave?
Jenelle returning home doesn’t come as a surprise, as a source told Radar she is “scared” of her husband. “Jenelle has been afraid to file for divorce before now,” a source previously told Radar. “She isn’t in control. He’s violent and he’s controlling and manipulative.”
