Facebook founder brags about eating the heart and liver of a horse

Since last month, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has been on an animal slaughter rampage and shares the gory details of his kills with friends on FB. “I just killed 20 pigs and ten goats,” he says in a recent note, posted along with a picture of a bear he killed as well as bear meat recipes.

Zuckerberg also told his pals that he had eaten the heart and liver of a horse he slaughtered.

So says an article written by Ritu Bhatia, published by India Today.

This is supposedly about his personal pledge for 2011 to eat only animals he kills with his own hands. PeTA are applauding Zuckerberg and sent him a vegan goodie basket.

In a CBS News report, Zuckerberg contends:

This year, my personal challenge is around being thankful for the food I have to eat. 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. 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 raising of animals.

Perhaps Zuckerberg is not bragging on this Facebook page about the animals he kills and eats. However, this sounds like a time constraint issue, not a health or humane one. If it were the latter, why not take the vegan challenge instead?

Most vegetarians and/or vegans ascribe to the theory that if people actually had to watch animals being slaughtered to put meat on their plates, there would be a lot more eating a plant-based diet. I wonder.

There is a post in a blog on politics and computers called 100gf that states:

The idea of only eating animals that you kill is gaining popularity in the tech world, where people are seeking ways to reconnect with the food on their plate. While we’re a long way from seeing products like Google Slaughter hit the market, there definitely seems to be a trend for techie types to trek out to farms and yank a few chickens’ necks. And there ain’t an app for that.

In another report it shows Zuckerberg cuddling a little white fluffy dog, with the comment his pooch is not likely to be on the menu. Why not?

Dog meat is eaten in a variety of countries such as Switzerland, China, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Korea.

At any rate, as Alicia Graef says on the Care2 Animal Welfare blog:

The animals who are killed have just as much of an interest in their own lives as we do in ours. Doing it yourself and watching an animal choking on their own blood and gasping for their last breaths doesn’t make it any more ethically justifiable than having someone else do it and buying it in a store even if you’re “thankful.”

  1. Sorry Kim. That is the way it has been put, with his “own hands.” I think they mean that he does the slaughtering himself. I have no idea how he is rendering these animals unconscious and hoisting them up for bleeding out for slaughter.

  2. Seriously??? So he’s only eating animals he kills with his hands? What’s he doing with horses then…slitting their throats or possibly using the methods from Mexico and hacking at it’s spin until it’s paralyzed and then bleeding it out? What is wrong with this guy anyway? Can you imagine looking into the eyes of the animal being killed, especially when it’s being done by a novice who is most likely not as quick and humane (and I use that term very loosely)?? Grow up little boy and find something else to occupy your time. And a vegan doesn’t eat meat, period. So don’t rest on those laurels cause they just don’t fit.

  3. I find it totally disgusting that you would brag about slaughtering a horse and eating it as well. You deserve the same. Read your BIBLE, Too bad you didn’t choke on it. You are probably our next serial killer that kills and eats people as well.

  4. Interesting……Facebook’s newest base of operations is in the heart of horse and ranch country of Central Oregon…we’ll have to keep an eye on horses to make sure none are bagged in the middle of the night…

    1. I can’t imagine slaughtering a horse is something he usually does. Seems like he is just experimenting with different animals. I just feel sorry for the poor horses he buys for the purpose — or any other animal — not knowing they are on their way to their deaths. No matter how it is done, an animal is being killed for no good purpose.

  5. Well done Ginger. I have been a vegetarian for so many years, I really don’t know any other way. Can’t really remember what it was like. It becomes a natural way of life you really don’t think about; just do! With this guy, what I hate are the copycats and what he is promoting.

  6. Someone needs to tell this idiot that the liver (any liver) is a filter for toxins, and, consquently, where they’re most concentrated. Even if he ate the liver of a horse intended for slaughter and never given any drugs, there’s still PCBs and dioxins to consider. I was a vegetarian for 5 years. It took me more time to prepare meals, but returning to that lifestyle is looking better all the time.

    1. Poor Ginger….I hope NOBODY tells that idiot about all the toxins he is eating! And I hope he gets so sick that he WISHES he would die! And I couldn’t agree MORE with you, Vivian. Facebook is rapidly going down the tubes. There’s got to be something better. And before I leave Facebook..I was wondering if it would do any good to get some people interested in emailing Facebooks ADVERTISERS and tell them there won’t be many people left to even SEE their ads, when we leave. Just a thought I was toying with.

  7. THIS MAN IS VERY DANGEROUS THE NEXT THING HE WILL BE DOING IS KILLING A HUMAN AND EATING THE HEART. I AM GLAD THAT I NEVER CONNECTED WITH FACEBOOK ESPECIALLY WHEN IT IS RUN BY A MAN WHO DON’T KNOW HOW TO BE A MAN AND BRAGS ABOUT IT. A “REAL” MAN WOULD NOT ACT LIKE THIS.

    1. You have missed nothing not being on Facebook. It is not well run, and a nuisance in my opinion. I wish we weren’t on it. We may not be much longer. I really can’t see any benefits. There is so much misinformation or repeated information on it too.

  8. It is Bad Business to post you are a coward and a murderer of an animal who cannot defend itself, there is nothing more disgusting, then to kill an animal and think it is the Manly thing to do……. Does he expect that anyone would think that is like so Manly?????? if he would like to get some respect he should save the animals, it is in the best interest of the world and its people…………………….. He has lost all creditability in my book………………………………………
