    From IMDB.com



    Two things.

    One, looks like life DOES imitates art.

    Two, this happened to her while she was filming 24. Which means in this season of 24... Kim will once again encounter a Cougar for some reason! ugh, are they completely out of ideas.

    Unless this is meant to be in jest, This is an old story that happened during the filming of S2

    ^Really! We'll perhaps it was a slow day for IMDB, so they just reused this story.

    Now here's the real kicker. Sometime after that S2 episode aired, someone biking in similar California woods was near fatally attacked by a cougar. So I guess that part of 24 wasn't so silly afterall.

    Um, that's an old story. She got bit in the hand last season. It's just an old story, probably re-used cause she's in that new movie The Girl Next Door.

    Talk about hyperbole! Sounds more like being the blonde she is, she stuck her hand where it didn't belong and she got exactly what was to be expected and deserved.

    The way they wrote it up, you'd think the cat had stalked her all day on the set, leapt on her from behind the catering truck and nearly ripped her throat out.

    EC did a tour of the 24 CTU set for Canadian TV. She mentioned the cougar incident but it was from the previous season.

    That's so lame that IGN uses old stories. I never knew they did that.

    Paul, are you sure you just did not get an old page that loaded up. It's happened to me before, even on HTF where a page loads up that is old and I have to refresh to get the current page.

    I wouldn't call a scar from sticking your hand in a cage with a cougar cool. It would be if you had a scuffle with one in the wild and lived to tell the story though, in that you lived and have the proof.

    No, wasn't an old page, the rest of the news was current. It did strike me as odd that they would have a story that was so old up there....
