The Great

Cougar Hunt Lawsuit


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!

I found out a short while back that I am a COUGAR. I'm fine with the expresion. I didn't set out to fine a yourger man, it just happened with us. We're very much in love and have the depest respect for each other. Both of our families can see the wonderful change in us. I am a young 65 year old (as of today), he's 17 years my junior. So, you might say there's more sides to Cougar then just one.

. 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.

Why wouldn't we hunt down hot, hard bodied young "healthy" men who don't need botox or viagra to make it through the day! Hey, it's a dog eat dog world. Men have been hunting younger women since the beginning of time. Times have changed. I would much rather wake up next to a young, hard bodied, full-head of hair...ready to "go" guy than a balding, beer gutt gent who needs a pill to get me going! You go girls!!! woo hooooo sexxxxy

The rule is: Women over 25 start losing their value. Men over 40 especially know this. (Bar bet - name a woman over 40 worth anything? Just look at the news to see what celebrity is divorcing their woman who hit this age. Looks mean nothing.) Therefore, women 35+ have a right to go after males that are younger, Older men know better than to pay for old used meat. (See Hef for a complete explanation.)

I would date a younger man ANYTIME because the men my age (42+) can never make it to round 2 & I have a COUGAR appetite! I would wear the name COUGAR proudly-...wouldn't be embarrassed at all!

Jenny Pruski: Was it Blind Man Night at the video lottery parlor?

Jenny Pulski: Are you sure that, rather than "cougar," he didn't actually call you "Cooter," thereby mistaking you for the loveable tow truck driver of Dukes of Hazzard fame?

I must have been hunted    

Wow, I have never heard that term before. But realize I was hunted about a month ago by a 56 year old, beautiful, hot, sexy woman.

I was taken captive and loved every moment.

She is still on my mind. She is hotter than many of th 25 - 35 year old women I date.
