The Great

Cougar Hunt Lawsuit

MUST READ!!!!

9/10/2008 9:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

This is the greatest lawsuit we've seen all month -- maybe all year -- and it's all over three chicks who are pissed at being branded "cougars" on national television.

Let's start with the important information. For those unfamiliar with the term "cougar," it's defined as "a sexually cunning 35+ female who is on the hunt for a much younger energetic male," at least according to the lawsuit.

Now onto the controversy: Three women are furious after they went to a club called Chapter 8 in Agoura Hills -- SoCal -- back in 2007 and wound up being featured on a G4 program called "Attack of the Show" -- in a segment called "The Great Cougar Hunt."

According to the suit, the ladies were portrayed as "older women who were attempting to pick up younger men at Chapter Eight, which was described (on the show) as a 'world famous cougar hot spot.' The segment describes cougars as the easiest and most ravenous prey for younger men."

The cougars three respectable ladies claim they were filmed without giving consent, and swear they "were not attempting to meet or 'hunt' younger men, or any men for that matter, on the day the video segment was made."

They also thought it was important to put this line in the lawsuit: "In fact, Plaintiffs do not date younger men at all."

The threesome claims the show was so "highly outrageous and offensive," that they're suing G4 and the two hosts of the show for more than $1,000,000!!!!!

FYI -- nowhere in the lawsuit do the ladies ever mention how old they are -- information that could be vital to the outcome of this highly important, extremely monumental legal battle. Calls to G4 were not returned.

The moral of the story: You mess with the cougar ... you get the claws!

Good for them ,they should sue[and win],I once overheard someone call me a cougar as I walked into a lounge to play lottery video, I was very offended as I find the thought of going out with a young guy just stupid.

i really think cougers should be women over 40 or better yet 50. i think cougers are women too old to be having kids. age 35 these days seems fairly young.
so i've got 3 questions... are they hot? do they wear undies? ummm... what was i saying.

This whole lawsuit is stupid I understand that women may or may not be looking but come on this is just stupid. If they win this then every older male should have the right to sue also

If they had been male, then we would've called them "dirty old men," "perverts," etc. These women are getting off easy with the term cougar.

I've always felt sorry for guys labelled "aging lotharios" because they're usually pot-bellied old farts who think they're hot, but cougars really do have claws!
