Wyoming Dog Law
Wyoming does not have a Dog Bite Statute.
Common Law Liability
In Wyoming, an injured person can recover damages caused by a dog if he or she proves that the owner’s negligence caused the injury. A victim can also recover under a theory of strict liability in cases where the dog owner knew, or should have known, that the dog had vicious propensities. In Wyoming, knowledge of vicious propensities can be proven by showing the general class that the dog belongs to.
Dangerous Dog Statute
Wyoming does not have a Dangerous Dog Statute. Individual counties are, however, permitted to enact dangerous and vicious dog ordinances.
