ANOTHER ARTICLE:  THE DOGS WERE A 4-YEAR-OLD MOTHER PIT BULL AND HER TWO 1  1/2 YEAR OLD LITTER MATES.

THE POST BELOW WAS TAKEN FROM JUST ONE OF THE SISTER'S MANY MEDIA ACCOUNTS:



A 9-year-old Sacramento County boy staying with an older sister who was trying to “rescue” him from the foster system apparently was mauled to death Sunday by her pet dogs after he was left alone in her trailer in rural Yuba County during a weekend visit, authorities said Monday.
No arrests had been made as of Monday afternoon in the death of Tyler Griffin-Huston, whose badly mangled body was found by his sister Alexandria Griffin-Heady, 24, when she returned Sunday morning after a few hours away from the travel-trailer in Linda where she lived with her dogs. A family member described the animals as PIT BULLS OR PIT BULL MIXES.
The boy’s aunt, Laura Badeker, said Tyler was in protective custody and living in a foster home under the care of Sacramento County Child Protective Services at the time of his death. Badeker said she repeatedly told the agency she thought Tyler was unsafe with his sister, who was granted unsupervised overnight visits with her brother after she moved to Northern California from Florida several months ago.
Badeker said she believes her niece was “trying to do the right thing” by pursuing custody of her brother, but felt her niece’s living situation was unstable and Tyler was unsafe with her dogs.

“She was trying to rescue him from the system,” Badeker said. “But I told everyone on the team that was supposed to be protecting Tyler that Ali was not prepared to take care of him on any level. They were warned over and over again.
“Why didn’t someone evaluate what was happening? Somebody needs to be held accountable for this.”
CPS issued a brief written statement in response to questions about the case.
“We are deeply saddened by the tragic death of this child,” said the statement, issued by agency spokeswoman Laura McCasland. “CPS is continuing to work with Yuba County law enforcement during this investigation.
Tyler and his four siblings endured a fractured family life marked by crime, drug abuse and homelessness, said Badeker. Their mother, Natalie Griffin-Trammell, spent years homeless and addicted to drugs, and died on the streets of Sacramento in 2011, at age 48. Loaves & Fishes, a Sacramento homeless services agency, held a memorial service for Natalie shortly after her death.
Tyler was the youngest of the five children she left behind, whose ages now range between 17 and 27 years old. Two of the siblings live with their adoptive parents on property adjacent to where Griffin-Heady was living, said Badeker. Tyler’s father, she said, is mentally disabled and unable to care for his son, who has lived in group homes and foster homes since his mother died.
Badeker said her niece had drifted around the country in recent years and before arriving in Sacramento had been living in a motel room in Florida with her dogs.
Griffin-Heady’s dogs appear to be a huge part of her life. Badeker said her niece has an affinity for pit bulls, believing they have been unfairly stigmatized and maligned. She has posted dozens of videos of her dogs on YouTube, mostly under the title “My Wolf Pack.”Many show her interacting with the animals in bed as they lick her face and playfully romp with her.

On her Facebook account, Griffin-Heady lists her motto as “live fast, die young, be wild and have fun.” She recently posted comments about Tyler:
“Life hits you sometimes in ways you cannot describe,” she wrote. “I never thought at 24 I’d be adopting my 9-year-old brother, but you roll with the punches.”
She added that she is grateful that “I get to raise him and shape him into an amazing man...God wouldn’t have made such an amazing boy just to be ordinary. In my life during all the bad I always wondered why I was here... I know now it was to care for him.”

Yuba County Undersheriff Jerry Read said detectives are still investigating Tyler’s death. He said Griffin-Heady could be charged with child endangerment. Her dogs were taken to the county’s animal services building, and likely will be euthanized if deemed dangerous, Read said.
Read said he was deeply affected by the case. “It made my heart hurt this morning,” he said. “That kid must have been terrified.”
“This one bothers me more than most,” he said. “I see lots of bad things, but none much worse than this. I have kids myself, so it goes deep with me.”
He questioned the boy’s living circumstances with his sister. She was staying in a small travel-trailer without working bathroom facilities. “Not having a bathroom in place is certainly not optimal,” he said.


The Linda neighborhood where Tyler died features large semi-rural lots with older homes and trailers. On the Dunning Avenue property where Griffin-Heady lives, a white stucco house with purple shutters sits beside an aging travel-trailer.
A man who answered the door at the house said the family was in mourning and declined an interview. He said Heady was not at home.
Across the street, Ronald Trapp said he had seen the boy with blond hair once or twice.
“It’s just an awful tragedy,” he said. “I’ve had dogs, pit bulls, my whole life and never had a problem with them like that. It’s awful. There’s no words to describe it, and I feel for the parents. May the child rest in peace.”

I see the sister also posted "newborn pitbull pups".

Breeding operation, maybe?

I read a comment regarding the children of alcoholics and how they seem to have an affinity for pit bulls, and that maybe what attracts them is the idea of loving something that could turn on them at any moment. There may be something to this theory...

No matter how much pit bull lovers crow about the superiority of their favourite breed, how they're really just "gentle giants" who are "misunderstood", I think that---deep down---they know full well their dogs are unstable and dangerous. They claim otherwise, and they even lie to themselves about it, but they know.

That poor boy never had a chance. RIP

Across the street, Ronald Trapp said he had seen the boy with blond hair once or twice.
“It’s just an awful tragedy,” he said. “I’ve had dogs, pit bulls, my whole life and never had a problem with them like that. It’s awful. There’s no words to describe it, and I feel for the parents. May the child rest in peace.”

Isn't he special? He's had pit bulls his whole life and he's never had them kill someone! I'm so enlightened by his comment, that it makes me want to run out and get 3 pit bulls for myself! Seriously, if Ronald Trapp hasn't had a problem with pit bulls, they must be wonderful, loyal, lovely, awesome, super extraordinary, most bestest dogs in the world!

I don't know what I can't stand more, watching that lady allow her pit bulls to lick her face, or reading dumb comments from nutters in a story about a little boy that was killed by pit bulls.

This one is a doozy! She got her sinuses cleaned out real good, didn't she? There is something about her behavior in the video with the dog licking her. She's young and she's had a rough life to put it mildly. Normal to me is...my dog licks the back of my leg or my hand to show affection when I come home or when I'm preparing their food and I pat it on the head or give it a quick back rub and give it some sweet talking and then it lays down by my chair or on its bed and that's that...we are companions...I'm the human and it's the dog.

This young woman has done this many times and practiced for the camera and is getting rewarded for continuing to let it eat her snot. I guess this is normal behavior in the pit nutter world !!!

Farmer Jane said...

Her dogs were taken to the county’s animal services building, and likely will be euthanized if deemed dangerous, Read said.

I'm not sure what else the dogs could do to convince these idiots that they're dangerous. Can there be any question about this? Evidently, if you look at other cases of murder by pit, or read the comments on any of the articles, there is. That these dogs are not summarily executed is a mystery to me. As someone who works with animals everyday, aggression towards humans cannot be tolerated. A rooster that attacks goes in the cook pot. A bull or cow that can't be trusted goes to the slaughterhouse. They're not even given a chance to hurt someone because they are capable of so much damage that it's not safe. It's just common sense.


Anonymous said...

Yeah, I was wondering what it takes to determine IF a pit bull is dangerous. I would think killing a human is a no-brainer, but when you care more about pit bulls than you do children, it's not?

I was looking at the dogsbite facebook page, and the older sister bought the nanny dog lie. I wonder if she wanted her little brother to prove her pit bulls were safe? Like, oh, if I just get 3 nanny dogs, I can show the world that there's nothing to worry about. Pit bulls get an undeserved reputation, and I'm going to set things straight with my little brother's life in the balance. UGH!

The only problem is, she proved the nanny dog lie wrong. She's not the one paying the price. Her brother was better off in the Foster Care program. At least he'd be alive.

Decatur AL livin nt to 4 pits said...

After looking at more of the videos on the sister's youtube channel and the 2nd facebook page found by dogsbite.org, I no longer think: Well bless her heart...she had a rough childhood. What I see is she was a child always dressed well and smiling with birthday parties and family around. She has looks and is well spoken for the most part. AND.....one more thing...fostering is not free....the state pays the foster parent. Does anyone know how much a foster family/parent receives each month from the state?

PutMeInCharge41Day said...

Dacatur AL,

According to an article from 2014 non relatives of a foster get 657+ a month. Relatives 343+ a month. A aqauintance of ours was going to go into the foster care "business" and for children with behavioral issues they were going to get $1,500 per child.

She had recently moved to California from Florida... as if the trailer, tattoos and Playboy bunny pants weren't all stereotypical enough for a pit bull owner. Yeesh.

Anonymous said...

I watched the news video of her crying and saying she didn't know whose fault it was. IT'S YOUR FAULT FUR MOMMY!

Anyway, the reporter mentioned that there's no animal control record of the pit bulls being a problem in that area. Yeah, because Alexandria only lived in CA for 5 minutes! How about do a criminal background check on her in Florida? Call animal control in the county where she used to live, and see what they have to say about the wonderful nanny dogs! I'm sure Alexandria was a completely responsible nutter, just like the rest of them.

My blood is now boiling.

"The dogs have not been destroyed and continued to be held at the Yuba County Animal Services shelter.

A notice on their cages said they had been classified as 'aggressive.'

Read said Griffin-Heady had requested to visit the dogs before they are put down. He said if she does not consent to having them destroyed, authorities will seek a court order to do so."

A NUTTER TO THE END. Alexandria wants to visit the worthless pit bulls that killed her brother. WHY?

Decatur AL livin nt to 4 pits said...

She had 2 FB pages according to dogsbite.org. They may both be closed by now. On this one:

https://www.facebook.com/ali.griffinheady/photos

she was living in Virginia and I read she said she had been there 2 years. One post she was asking for prayers because her female pit had heart problems but was allergic to anesthesia and could not be operated on....I'M THINKING NOW.....IT WAS NOT TOO SICK TO PUMP OUT A LITTER OR TWO. She has a video of her collecting her dogs baby teeth they had lost...LAYING THEM ON A BED AND COUNTING THEM...GO FIGURE!!! I donno...watching her gives me the creeps and I stopped it. This is one for Craven Desires. The laughing gets on my nerves...it reminds me of a woman that lived across the street when I was a child...alcoholic and would go into periods of laughing inccesantly...BI-POLAR???

Counting their baby teeth? Lovingly too, I suppose... barf

Can you imagine sharing a small room with *3* of those things? Disgusting

She was a narcissistic drifter who refused to work and fed off others EVEN THOUGH SHE HAD A WONDERFUL CHILDHOOD WITH ADOPTIVE PARENTS.

She also was breeding and selling pit bulls for fast cash. And acting as a Pit Bull Advocate so she could keep breeding and selling pit bulls to fill her greedy pockets

Her latest scheme was to fasten on to this boy and manipulate him, as well as sit around and collect taxpayer money and benefits through having him, and feed off everyone else like a parasite, and use the money to feed her pit bulls

CPS and the state government was happy to help her steal from everyone else and use everyone elses money to run a pit bull breeding operation

"Play stupid games, win stupid prizes"

She gambled with her own life by keeping these beasts, too bad she also gambled with her brother's and he's the one who paid for it.
