Actor and total badass Liam Neeson reportedly saved a dog’s life from some thugs in Central Park earlier this week.

According to a story on Life With Dogs (this story could very well be fake because some of the details seem a little absurd, but then again this would be an extremely random story for someone to make up; however, some people have A LOT of spare time on their hands), Neeson was jogging in Central Park when he heard a woman screaming “that teenage boys were stoning a dog to death.”

“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.”

“The punks just swaggered up and warned him to mind his own business,” the witness allegedly continued.  “In a fury, he warned them to back off fast — or else!”

Here’s where the story gets kind of ridiculous: “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!’”

Even if this didn’t actually happen this seems like something that Liam Neeson would actually do so it’s kind of a 60/40 chance on the real/ not real scale.
