Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg has vowed to only eat meat of animals that he has killed himself.
The young billionaire likes to set personal challenges for himself and this time, he has taken to exclusively eating meat that he has killed. Zuckerberg says that after taking the vow, he has practically turned vegetarian.
Zuckerberg is chronicling his year-long vow via Facebook status messages and recent uploaded a photo of a chicken he had killed and a list of dishes he had made out of it.
Zuckerberg’s friend Jesse Cool gave him advise on how to go about killing his animal and even introduced him to farm owners who provided him with the animal, Fortune reports.
“I think many people forget that a living being has to die for you to eat meat, so my goal revolves around not letting myself forget that, and being thankful for what I have," Zuckerberg said.
"This year I've basically become a vegetarian, since the only meat I'm eating is from animals I've killed myself. So far, this has been a good experience. I'm eating a lot healthier foods and I've learned a lot about sustainable farming and [the] raising of animals."
