For Jenelle Evans this week, one of her lows made it on to Teen Mom 2 and fans were horrified when they saw her lose her temper with her dogs, especially Nathan Griffith's dog, who seemed to get the brunt of her anger.
Jenelle pulled him by the collar, yelled at him and let him run loose in the front yard, saying she basically didn't care if he came back. She also put him and her other VERY large dog together in a crate that was definitely not built for two dogs that size.
Fans reacted on Twitter and some got so mad, they sent concerned messages to PETA. The organization was quick to respond and penned an open letter to the reality star. You can read the whole letter here, but here are some of the highlights:
Viewers can see that as much as you want to do the right thing for your dogs, you have so much going on in your life that you have neither the time nor the patience to give them what they need...They are full of feelings and needs, just as you are, and when you scream at them, it clearly frightens and upsets them...Please immediately make the commitment to finding them a new, suitable home where they are not kept in crates and punished and yelled at for relieving themselves...Please understand that dogs are not toys or amusements or possessions just to have around.
Jenelle hasn't publicly responded to PETA, but she did sit down with MTV to discuss the issue (video below). She admitted that she regretted her actions and discussed what she could have done differently in the situation. She also said she got a lot of helpful tips from the Humane Society website on how to deal with dogs.
Do you think Jenelle will be able to use this as a learning experience or should she listen to PETA and find them a new home where they can have a better living environment?
