Facebook’s Mark Zuckerburg Bags Bison, Mounts in Company Office

Photo courtest of "All Things D"

Step aside Wyatt Earp and Bill Cody, there’s a new hunter roaming the dusty streets of…Palo Alto, California? As posted by All Things D, Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg may well be the youngest billionaire bison-slayer the world has yet seen. In a California culture known to be vicious towards hunting, why would the young entrepreneur target tatonka over, say, tilapia?

Burgers, my friends; tasty, mouth-watering burgers.

With an estimated net worth of $17.5 billion, the online icon with a penchant for personal challenges stated in an email to Fortune, “The only meat I’m eating is from animals I’ve killed myself.” Fair enough. He wrote, “People forget that a living being has to die for you to eat meat.” As hunters, we couldn’t agree more.

To proudly display his kill, Zuckerberg hung the beastly bovinae head in a conference room at the company’s headquarters as a prank aimed at his top exec, Sheryl Sandberg.

He kills his own meat, proudly displays his trophy, has a sense of humor and isn’t shy about hunting, but the real question remains: Is Zuckerberg a real hunter, or is he just donning the camo temporarily? Time will tell. But we’re going to extend an invite to this compu-predator for a future hunt. Do you think he will accept?

We sure hope so. We’ll be his first friend on Facebuck.

    What does the Nuge think? If Ted says he is the real thing, I'll believe it.

    Better Ted than Dead!

    Seems more of a " Facebison" to me, & I hope it wasn't one of those tame-looking game ranch ones. ;)

    I would have no problem with Him being a Hunter. But Hunting Bison is a Sacred Native American Indian Tradition that involves a ceremony and if He's taken Bison without the blessIng of the Tribe and of the Spirit of the Bison. For the Bison is a Sacred Animal to All Native American People. The Creator (God) tells us:The Great Spirit told the people, "These animals are your brothers. Share the land with them. They will give you food and clothing. Live with them and protect them.So we Have a Ritual that is Done to prepare for the Hunt and Even the Blessing of the Animal After the Kill. That would be my question? If This was Applied to His Bison as He Display's the Trophy He calls it. With a Ball cap.Disrespecting what gave It's life to feed Him.

    It's no wonder us animal advocates have such a bullshit relationship with FB when its CEO and founder, Zuckerberg, is an animal killer–probably canned hunting at that. Start being on the animal's side, FB! And as a Native American, I strongly object to this animal's killing. Get right with this planet and its animals before it is too late.

    Wanting to know if that is actually Mark Zuckerberg in the pic . . . does not look like him at all~ Anyone know for sure??

    HUNTERS ARE A SUBSPECIES NOTHING ELSE…NO EXCEPTION TO THE RULE….just because you kill a animal with a gun/bow, does not make you a MAN.
