Jill Phipps, the British animal rights activist who was killed while blocking a trailer transporting veal calves, was remembered by animal rights activists around the world who held protests at slaughterhouses in her memory.

In New York City, activists marched through Astoria, Queens, to a slaughterhouse and staged a silent vigil at the entrance. Inside, hundreds of chickens stacked in crates were being killed, butchered and sold. With the help of a few determined activists, one chicken made it out alive and is living in peace at a sanctuary for rescued farm animals. The activists named her Jill.

    Such a crying shame that good Lady died.Not only terribly sad that a decent soul lost her life so young and tragically but also the innocent animals needed her desperately.

    A noble, compassionate woman who stood and fought with all her heart for the defenseless and the innocent. In the Lord’s arms, safe….. in our hearts forever.
