Mark Zuckerberg Tags Bison
By David Maccar
In May we reported that billionaire 20-something and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was determined to hunt and kill his own meat in an effort to live a healthier lifestyle. Now, it looks like he’s made good on his word and stocked his freezer with some bison meat.
From this story on mashable.com:
Keeping with his commitment to only eat what he kills, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg shot and killed a bison for food.
Questions about Zuckerberg killing a bison began to surface during his f8 keynote last week. During his presentation, one box on his Timeline profile displayed that he was cooking bison burgers. This naturally raised a question with many audience members: Did Zuckerberg kill a bison?
The answer is apparently yes, he did kill a bison. According to Fortune, Zuckerberg recently obtained a hunting license and killed the bison now featured on his Facebook Timeline.
“Yeah, he killed a bison,” one of our sources told us, confirming Fortune‘s report.
So does this legitmize Zuckerberg's claims, or does it smell like a subtle publicity stunt? Side question: considering his new proclivity toward hunting and firearms, who thinks Zuckerberg is the nameless "Silicon Valley Mogul" who purchased this Colt revolver for almost $1 million?
