Anti-Brexit barrister kills a FOX with a baseball bat 'while wearing his wife's satin kimono', sparking row with animal rights activists
- Jolyon Maugham QC claimed he killed a fox with a baseball bat on Boxing Day
- Mr Maugham said he 'dispatched' the animal wearing his wife's satin kimono
- The fox got caught in netting around the chickens in his central London garden
A top barrister has apologised after revealing he killed a fox with a baseball bat this morning.
Jolyon Maugham QC, known for fighting a series of legal cases against Brexit, revealed that he 'dispatched' the animal the day after Christmas in his central London garden wearing his wife's satin kimono.
He said he bought the baseball bat to 'discourage intruders' but ended up using it to kill the fox caught in the protective netting around his chickens - who were left 'a little anxious but otherwise well'.
Mr Maugham, an outspoken remain-backing lawyer and occasional newspaper columnist, tweeted: 'Already this morning I have killed a fox with a baseball bat. How's your Boxing Day going?'
Social media users were divided as to whether Mr Maugham's response was appropriate, with some finding the post amusing and others branding it 'vile'.
He proudly announced it on Twitter. I just hope some wackjob does the same to him, twunt.
