Mark Zuckerberg is not afraid to take on a new challenge. In fact, every year he establishes a new one to sharpen his personal discipline. After mobilizing more than 200 million people on facebook, in 2009 he wore a tie every day (somewhat of an anti-climax), and set out to learn Chinese in 2010. In 2011, he vows to only eat meat from animals that he kills with his own two hands. Step in to find out why this clean-shaven Harvard dropout is mostly a vegetarian these days.

Many people are happy to believe their meat comes from the supermarket shelves, preferring to numb out that animal’s bloody history. But Zuckerberg told Fortune magazine that he finds that attitude irresponsible. As part of his 2011 pledge to be more thankful for the food he consumes each day, the young media mogul has decided to kill the animals he wants to eat.

With celebrity chef Jesse Cool’s guidance, Zuckerberg learned how to cut a goat’s throat with a knife, the most humane method of slaughter. Once he proudly posted on his private facebook page that he had killed “a pig and a goat” that day. His next challenge? Hunting.
