Liam Neeson DIDN'T Give Dog-Abusing Central Park Thugs The Movie Star Treatment

Remember when John Malkovic saved the life of a man who managed to slit his throat in the street? Well, it was reported that Liam Neeson apparently saved a stray dog when kids were throwing stones at it. This, however, has been denied by the star.

Liam NeesonLiam Neeson didn't save a dog. He didn't save a dog.

Reports suggested the Non-Stop actor came across “Three gangbanger wannabe types who were throwing rocks at a stray they’d cornered up against a trash bin,” a source told ShowbizSpy.com.

“Liam yelled that they’d better stop or he’d knock the c*** out of them – but the punks just swaggered up and warned him to mind his own business.’’

 And after he finally chased off the youths, “Liam just shook his head and approached the shivering dog, stroking it while the policeman assessed its injuries,” the source added. The officer apparently then “thanked the star and told him, “I’ll take it from here, sir!”

None of this actually happened though: a representative for the star told MailOnline on Friday that the story was “not true.” 

He may not have saved the dog – we can’t imagine where that story came from- but he has shown support for New York’s horse-drawn carriage industry, which Mayor Bill de Blasio wants to shut down.

‘It's a connection with our past, it's a connection with our history. And it has to be said - the great white elephant in the room, four prime locations on the West Side of New York that realtors must be salivating to get their hands on,” Neeson explained. 

“The mayor wants to replace them with electric cars. That's exactly what New York needs, more cars. This experiment has been tried with electric cars in San Francisco -failed abysmally.”
