Chickens that were to be publicly slaughtered as part of an art project in Lawrence have been spared.

City officials told artist Amber Hansen the slaughter would violate animal cruelty ordinances.

Hansen originally planned to display coops of chickens at various locations around Lawrence. The chickens were to be publicly slaughtered and served as a meal. She said the intention was to draw attention to the process of slaughtering animals.

Assistant City Attorney Chad Sublet told Hansen a public slaughtering of chickens would violate city codes. And even keeping the chickens on private land would require her to meet other city codes on animal care.

Hansen said she will change the public art event rather than fight the city’s decision.
