CNN website Mark Zuckerberg, the 27-year-old founder of Facebook, has made a vow to only eat meat of animals that he himself has killed.
Each year, so the article, Zuckerberg comes up with a personal challenge for himself. Last year he decided to learn Chinese, this year he's going to be his own meat processor. And his reasoning is actually pretty logical. He said, “I started thinking about this last year when I had a pig roast at my house. A bunch of people told me that even though they loved eating pork, they really didn't want to think about the fact that the pig used to be alive. That just seemed irresponsible to me. I don't have an issue with anything people choose to eat, but I do think they should take responsibility and be thankful for what they eat rather than trying to ignore where it came from.
I say, Good on Zuckerberg to take the responsibility of killing his own food. That is a lot more than can be said for those that criticize hunters for killing animals and then go to the store to buy a steak. After Zuckerberg made the announcement, some of his friends commented on his Facebook page that they were disgusted with his decision. But despite the criticism, he's taking the challenge pretty seriously. Zuckerberg posted messages and photos on Facebook about killing lobsters, goats, pigs and chickens before eating them.
Zuckerberg also said that he's interested in going hunting. Well if he needs guidance I would be more than willing to get him started in the right direction of becoming a successful hunter. Well done Mark, another big city person is back on planet reality.
