David Eason is breaking his silence and sharing his story about what really happened with the family dog, Nugget, back in late April. Back then, it was revealed that David had allegedly shot and killed the family dog because it had nipped Ensley. In addition, Jenelle Evans made a 911 call in relation to the incident.

Then, when the couple said nothing about the incident, the local police department inquired about it, releasing a statement. They claimed that it could have been a publicity stunt when they failed to find any proof that the dog had been killed.

Now, David is breaking his silence and during an interview with PEOPLE. He tears up as he explains that he loves the dog and it was heartbreaking what he thought he had to do.

“It was a situation where my daughter, her health, her safety was in danger,” David explains of his actions.

“This was something that nobody wants to ever have to do. The dog was aggressive. Yes, she might not be huge or whatever, but you know when a dog bites a child on the face more than one time, then it should never be around the child again. If you give the dog up for adoption, one day it’s going to be around children again,” he added, defending his actions.

David explained that he was within his legal right to kill the dog because it had attacked a child. The video was shared online and not everyone considered the bite an attack.
