Actor Liam Neeson is known for being the hero and taking on the bad guys in his movies, but according to ShowBizSpy.com, he recently took on some bad guys in real life. Apparently, he was out jogging in Central Park in New York City when he heard a woman shouting that some teenage boys were stoning a stray dog to death.
According to the Show Biz Spy, the actor ran over to the boys and confronted them. An unnamed source recounted what happened saying, "Liam yelled that they’d better stop or he’d knock the crap out of them – but the punks just swaggered up and warned him to mind his own business. In a fury, he warned them to back off fast – or else!"
The source also said the boys backed off, but it was likely due to the sight of an approaching cop. Afterwards, Liam is said to have comforted the injured dog while the police officer assessed the animal.
I hope this story encourages anyone who sees someone doing something violent towards an animal to call for help!
Update: Liam Neeson has denied the story that he saved a stray dog from a group of teenage boys. A representative told the DailyMail that the story reported by ShowbizSpy.com was "not true".
