Determination of a Vicious Animal
If an animal control officer or law enforcement officer has probable cause to believe that an animal is vicious, a hearing may be convened to determine wheter the animal is vicious. If the animal is found to be vicious, the owner must comply with the restrictions of Salt Lake City Code.

Vicious Dogs.
Any dog which, when not physically provoked, physically attacks, wounds, bites or otherwise injures any person who is not trespassing, is vicious.
