Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg Kills and Eats a Bison
|Mark Zuckerberg: Dweeb turned hunter.|
According to Fortune.com, Zuckerberg attempted to explain his strange pledge via (what else?) Facebook.
"Every year I have a yearly personal challenge. It's a good way to explore different things I wouldn't normally do and challenge myself. Towards the end of last year I reflected a bunch of how thankful I was that we were building so many good things and things have gone well so far and I decided to make this year's challenge around being more thankful for what I have. I struggled for a while about how to implement this, but eventually decided that forcing myself to get personally involved and thank the animals whose lives I take in order to eat them was the best day-to-day way to remind myself to be thankful. So every day when I can't eat meat I am reminded of why not and how lucky I am, and when I do get the chance to eat meat it's especially good. This challenge also has the benefit of making me generally healthier, and I'm also learning a lot about sustainable living."
So far, Zuckerberg has claimed to kill a lobster, a chicken, a goat and a pig.
But at the recent F8 Developers Conference, Zuckerberg displayed his Facebook page on a large screen -- complete with a notification that he was cooking bison burgers.
Speculation has run rampant on whether Zuckerberg actually went out and hunted a large, snorting animal with deadly horns himself.
Fortune's Patricia Sellers reports that sources close to the Facebook co-creator confirm that, in fact, Zuckerberg obtained a hunting license and "recently shot and killed a bison".
We're so hoping that Zuckerberg gets a hankering for alligator in the near future, because we gotta see that in person!
