Forget the deli, soon Omaha residents will be able to chose live animals for future meals.

The live meat market was approved by the Omaha City Council on Tuesday following an hour debate. Tom's Live Market will be granted a special use permit in south Omaha.

The business will process animals such as sheep, pigs, rabbits, goats and small cattle. Customers can pick animals from pens at the business and wait while they're slaughtered, processed and packaged.

Council members have required owner Tom Meyer to post signs warning off children under 12 from areas where they could see the animals processed.

Meyer says the concept is new for Omaha but familiar in cities around the country.
