3.19.14 - Liam Neeson Saves Abused Dog2

Actor Liam Neeson is more than just a hero on-screen – he helped save the life of a dog being stoned to death by a group of ruffians in Central Park.

Neeson was jogging through Manhattan’s Central Park when he was abruptly halted by a woman shouting that teenage boys were stoning a dog to death.  The dog was trapped, terrified and in pain.

“Abruptly changing direction, Liam charged down a path and confronted three gangbanger wannabe types who were throwing rocks at a stray they’d cornered up against a trash bin,” a witness said.  “Liam yelled that they’d better stop or he’d knock the crap out of them.”

They weren’t to be intimidated by the Taken star.

“The punks just swaggered up and warned him to mind his own business,” the witness explained.  Neeson was incensed.  “In a fury, he warned them to back off fast – or else!”

“Yeah, okay, man…we’re out of here,” the apparent ringleader said.

Liam smirked, impressed that he was able to get them to retreat.  However, it wasn’t his minacious disposition that spooked the hooligans.

“Turns out it was the sight of the approaching cop that had spooked the boys. Liam just shook his head and approached the shivering dog, stroking it while the policeman assessed its injuries – then thanked the star and told him: ‘I’ll take it from here, sir!’”

  1. Yes, what happened to the dog?
    Is he being treated for injuries, is he at a shelter?
    Poor dog deserves a chance.

  2. Probably a staged publicity stunt, if it happened at all! The actor has been reamed by animal activists for his part in “The Grey” the movie and more recently for his stance on the carriage horses in New York! Liam doesn’t give a crap about animals, but you can bet your ass he cares about his paychecks. Sorry Liam no redemption for you, you poser!

  3. It would be great if Liam adopted the dog. What a great second chance for that poor dog. Keep up the good work Liam. The world needs more people like you.

  4. I’m sorry you fell for Neeson’s pitiful publicity stunt. Neeson has nothing but contempt for animals, as evidenced by his huge and arrogant attempt at obstructing any chance for freedom for nyc’s put-upon carriage horses.

    This gives me even less respect for the spoiled, arrogant “star” if that’s possible, and now I lose respect for your publication.

    I’d rather stick needles in my eyes than see a movie he is in, or read an article with this degree of phoniness.

    Neeson, you’re so busted. We aren’t falling for it, and this site should know better.

  5. I will watch his movies anytime. There is no reason to stop horse drawn carriages the horses are taken care of when I saw them last. Not being mistreated there a horse and that’s why they were put here there working horses. There meant for this kind of work not sure what the mayor is thinking of but putting electric trolleys to take over is so dam stupid he needs to give his head a shake I think the major is tired of smelling shitting and animal activists are really ticking me off pretty soon you won’t be able to eat cows,pigs,fish or chickens because it’s not right to bad that’s why they were put here

    • Joy instead of bashing the carriage horses and the mayor for trying to get rid of their awful working conditions, why don’t you learn to spell and punctuate. you write like you made it to second grade. Animals were not put here to be eaten. They were put here for us to love them and to care for them. To have dominion over the animals in the Bible meant for us to have stewardship over them and care for them. God hates factory farms. How do I know that? Because God is loving and kind and He loves His creatures, even the four legged ones. Look at the story of Balaam and the angel. God sent the angel down to kick Balaams butt if he didn’t stop beating his donkey.

      • Hmm Cheryl….so where is your “god” to prevent factory farms from happening, animal abuse from happening, ANY abuse from happening? Or does he just watch from afar for amusement?

        • In a sense I believe you mean well God created us with teeth designed for omnivorous diets I don’t believe in killing for the sport but I do believe you kill it you eat and respect the animal dont just kill it for the trophy or fun. I do believe we have dominion over animals and such but not the right to abuse or neglect.

  6. Joy what an ignorant and arrogant comment. Animals weren’t ‘put here’ for human greed or dominion despite what fairy tales you believe in the Bible. Every living sentient being had a right to its own life and horses, naturally skittish animals, should never be kept in a major City surrounded by traffic and fumes purely for human entertainment. Get over yourself. Sorry to hijack this post but attitudes like that really wind me up. As for Liam main I agree that if this event even happened it was no doubt a publicity stunt. Where are the photos or phone video-you aren’t telling me someone wouldn’t have taken photos of this ‘heroic’ act?

    • You sure contradicted yourself. So where ARE the videos, etc if it was a publicity act? Haven’t heard anything about this story except here in this relatively obscure publication. If this was all about publicity as many of you haters insist, how come we haven’t heard more about it? Get over yourselves. Just because the man is famous doesn’t mean he can’t do good things once in awhile. And also – how many of you who are hating on him know him personally? How could you possibly know anything about this man except what you read and judge him on that? It’s attitudes like yours that make this world such a $*$%%y place to live.

    • You negate your own point. The idea of a publicity stunt is that it creates publicity. Photographers, people with cell phones at ready would have been there. The fact is not everyone seeing something horrid happening immediately think to grab it for youtube. Some people are actually more concerned with what is happening that grabbing that sound bite.

    • Animals arent meant to be on a farm are you kidding! They are meant for the wild but we keep them on farms because we are to lazy to go out and get something everytime we need it and your still an idiot because people like you kill this planet tryin to save EVERYTHING when there is a thing called the circle of life which hinders eveolution for all you bible humpers sorry to burst your bubble but maybe stop talking about the little shit and see the real issue!
