Hours after it was reported that Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans had left her North Carolina home after her husband David Eason had shot and killed her bulldog Nugget following an incident with their young daughter Ensley, Eason took to his Instagram to defend his actions.

Early on Wednesday, May 1 Eason took to his Instagram to share in a now-deleted post what seems to be the incident that prompted him to kill the dog. In the video Eason is taping as Ensley is on the couch with Nugget and as Ensley leans her face in really close to Nugget’s, Eason can be heard saying “Good girl.” Nugget can be seen snapping when Ensley got too close and as Ensley starts crying, the camera is pointed to the ground as Eason starts running over to the couch.

Alongside the video he wrote, “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 shit at all.”

He added, “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 weather or not a animal is a danger to MY CHILD is ME.”

As previously reported an “unidentified male” called 911 to report the incident while the Columbus County Sheriff’s Department is “investigating.”

After the incident Jenelle reportedly left her home and returned to only “pack a bag” with the source adding that the reality star “doesn’t feel safe with David” and “is scared and terrified” of him.

On Tuesday afternoon, she changed her Facebook status to read “Jenelle Evans is devastated.” She also took to her Instagram to share stories of Ariana Grande’s breakup songs “In My Head” and “Bad Idea” as well “Thank u, next.
