Angry mob protests outside Liam Neeson’s New York home

Irish actor Liam Neeson’s luxury New York home has been picketed by animal rights activists outraged by his support for the city’s controversial horse-drawn carriage trade.

Neeson has been an outspoken opponent of plans by the city’s new mayor Bill De Blasio to remove the popular tourist attraction and replace the carriages with vintage cars.

At the weekend an angry mob besieged the Taken star’s house with signs and slogans like “Liam Neeson: Stop Supporting Cruelty!” and “Worked to Death!”

A statement from PETA Senior Vice President Dan Mathews to GossipCop.com reads: “Neeson and his carriage cronies – who are working with horse-slaughter proponents – are willfully misleading the public about the routine cruelty that horses in New York’s carriage industry endure.”

Neeson did not appear during the protest, and he has not commented on the situation.

One of the demonstrators was Peter Wood, an animal protection investigator for various organisations that say it’s cruel for the horses to be subjected to traffic, pollution and possible accidents.

“It’s 2014, not 1914. It’s time for a change,” said Wood, who lives in Manhattan.

“Horses don’t belong in traffic, surrounded by buses. They don’t belong in the city; it’s outdated, it’s cruel,” he said, adding, “Life attached to a carriage with a poop bag attached to your rear end — that’s no life.”
