Yesterday, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, was live on Facebook and declared his love for hunting, harvesting his own food, and barbecuing. In the 30-minute live video, Zuckerberg said: “Things taste better when you cook them yourself, but they taste doubly better when you’ve hunted the animal yourself.”
One of the 10 million live viewers of video asked if he hunts, and Mark confirmed that he does in fact hunt (when he has the time) Mark stated, “Yeah, I hunt. It’s a good way to feel connected to nature.” He went on to say, “If you’re going to eat meat, you should get to know where it comes from.” That’s what hunting is all about; being able to harvest and provide food for your family is what’s so rewarding.
It is not Zuckerberg’s first commitment to hunting. In 2011, he had announced that he only wants to eat what he has hunted himself . In the same year, the Facebook founder was seen on a Bison hunt. During the video, a picture of him with a trophy was published on his timeline for the audience to see.
Mark Zuckerberg said he started hunting around 4 or 5 years ago, and from the sound of it, he’s hooked.
