The Cubs Are Suing The People Responsible For Fake "Billy Cub" Mascot

Even though their own official mascot is a pantsless terror, the Chicago Cubs are suing the people responsible for a fake Cubs Mascot that has been hanging around Wrigley and causing all kinds of problems. Most notably, the fake mascot, known as "Billy Cub," punched someone in a Wrigleyville bar back in April.

The team says the defendants are trying to pass their character off as an official representative of the team, and it accuses them of trademark infringement, injuring the team's reputation and unfair competition.


The cubs filed suit against John Paul Weier, Patrick Weier, and three other unnamed defendants on Friday in U.S. District Court in Chicago, demanding among other things, that the Billy Cub costume be "delivered for destruction."
