12/15/2008 5:41 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

This weekend in Malibu our photog almost got to see how MacGyver -- aka Richard Dean Anderson -- would take down an alleged animal abuser using only the dog's leash, his own glasses and a Christmas poinsettia.

He probably would've confronted him if the camera man wasn't there. I didn't want it to come across like he was just doing it for the camera.

I love him!!!! General O'Neill will be in my dreams tonight :D

People of Mailbu! Be on the lookout for that fat gut dog beater! Next time he's seen he should definitely be confronted! If he does this in public, imagine what that poor baby (the dog) must go through at home where no one can see!

In a comparison you use the conjunction THAN, ("then" is an adverb)

Who cares? The comment itself has nothing to do with grammar but rather an animal abuser and the lack of "involvement" by a "star."

I think he would have done more if stupid tmz wasn't there. How would you feel if you came outside to possible confront someone and a papparazzi is interviewing you about it?

OMG I used to LOVE MacGuyver, I used to watch it every night when I was like 8. Too bad it went off the air, and I don't care anymore. Man was he pissed, that dude with the dog almost got his ass handed to him by a man who could defuse a bomb with a hairbrush and a tooth pick. Patty and Selma would be proud.

Richard Dean Anderson has always been hunky, but his attractiveness has just quadrupled in my eyes.

I agree that RDA would have intervened on that poor dog's behalf if that photographer hadn't been all up in his face. The photographer should have been filming the dog abuser, not bugging RDA.

But he didn't do anything. He said the guy was beating the crap out of it, and he turned and walked into the restaurant. and FYI .. tmz guy with the camera.. Abuse is NOT training !

this is why I cannot stand all this Hollywood trash. They say big and bold statements, but they never do anything. Talk is cheap. Kinda reminds me of Cindy Crawford who was stripping for anti fur campaing (mostly for her own publicity and exposure using good cause), and in a few years was modeling fur coats. What can I say, they are paid whores.

I think he did the right thing. He was with his daughter and an unknown woman. Don't know if getting in that man's face would have helped. But he was vocal about it with people around. Besides, he was Col. Jack O'Neill (Stargate) for 10 years and probably knew he could kill the guy. . . And he's a definite dog lover -- he probably called the cops from the restaurant.
