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.
