Guggenheim Museum pulls controversial animal art exhibits

The Guggenheim Museum in New York has pulled three exhibits featuring animals after receiving “explicit and repeated threats of violence”.

Campaigners had complained that the works showed “cruelty against animals in the name of art”.

A petition to pull the exhibits had gained more than 500,000 signatures.

The museum said they will not now be shown “out of concern for the safety of its staff, visitors, and participating artists”.
