The Cougar cubs are the deuteragonists of the 1987 film Benji the Hunted. Their mother gets shot by a hunter, Benji becomes their protector and a black timber wolf relentlessly pursues Benji and the cubs.


After Benji's chase with the Timber Wolf, a bear appears and they hide in a bush. The Grey Cub comes out of the bush trying to fight with the bear. It hisses at the bear and it roars at the cubs, causing it to run back into the bush. Benji makes the bear chase him so it doesn't hurt the cubs. Unfortunately, one of the cubs gets carried away by an eagle. Benji tricks the Timber Wolf by hiding in a bush that shields the cliff, causing the Timber Wolf to fall to his death. Benji finally succeeds by introducing the cubs to the Mother Cougar and gets rescued by Frank Inn.
