Former Boulder City Animal Control Chief, Mary Jo Frazier, who allegedly euthanized over 100 dogs after being in the shelter for 24 hours or less was recently sentenced to 90 days for euthanizing her own dog after he urinated in the house – although others have claimed that she did so only because she was going through a bitter divorce and wanted to hurt her husband by killing his dog. Bill Conger, who was the former police chief was forced to resign after information came to light that he forced detectives to look the other way regarding claims against Fraizer started to surface as well as when drugs and money started to vanish from the Boulder City animal control center.
Fraizer’s fellow co-workers said that she had euthanized animals without waiting the required time peried, and Las Vegas Metro Police Department have compiled at least 91 instances of unusual animal deaths at the shelter.
Former police chief Conger who did not bring charges against Frazier initially, was handed a $1,000 fine after he pleaded guilty to one count of failure to perform a duty.
A defense attorney for Frazier told the judge his client had been going through a stressful time in her life and moving out of state. This may be a wise choice as many in the city and surrounding areas who have heard about Fraizer’s supposed misdeeds have been very vocal on social media about what she did – and what they would do to her if given the chance. Most people in Boulder City familiar with the story believe that Frazier and Conger both got only a slap on the wrist and that they deserved much stiffer penalties than they were given.
