In a story recorded on Instagram, the student is seen applying seasoning to a live chick inside an air fryer. “How to make braised chicken,” they wrote in the caption. And in another video, a bird appears to have died inside the air fryer.
The Louisville school tweeted over the weekend to say it was aware of an “off-campus incident” involving “alleged acts of animal cruelty.”
Read her update “We take reports of such events very seriously.” “The university immediately transferred all relevant information to the relevant authorities for further investigation,” it added.
A University of Louisville student said she called the police after watching the videos.
“It gives you a grim feeling, like I’m wrong for being able to see it,” student Sarah Devers told WDRB.
She said she saw the video and had no doubts that the chicks were real. ‘Nice try to try and gaslight,’ she said, ‘I think anyone who’s ever seen pups before can tell they’re real pups.

The university confirmed that the Instagram profile belonged to the student in question
“I would like to see him not be a student anymore, I don’t have a student like that and getting a degree from the University of Louisville is right anyway.”
In Kentucky, for animal cruelty to be a crime, the mistreatment must be cruel or result in injury to the animal.
Animal rights advocate Rebecca Ives told WDRB that she believes the behavior could lead to worse actions.
“One thing we should always remember is that there is a direct connection from someone who takes innocent creatures and tortures them,” she said. “There is a direct link to other forms of cruelty, and they will escalate.”
