A pet responsible for such attacks can be deemed a dangerous or vicious animal under West Fargo Ordinance 11-0101(4) if: when unprovoked, the pet inflicts a bite on any human or domestic animal either on private or public property; it has a documented history with the West Fargo Police Department or other public agency of biting or attacking any human or domestic animal; it has a known propensity, tendency, or disposition to attack, to cause injury, or otherwise threaten or endanger the safety of humans or domestic animals; or is not properly vaccinated.

The city of West Fargo has installed recreational trails throughout the city for the purpose of creating interconnectivity to parks, schools and neighborhoods. The trails see heavy use by people walking, running, skating or biking. The difference in speed for each of the modes of travel can create conflict and could result in someone being injured. To help avoid such conflict, ordinances have been enacted as to where and how a person can ride a bicycle. Practiced courtesies amongst all users can also reduce potential hazardous conditions.
