The Mother Cougar is the tritagonist in the 1987 film Benji the Hunted.

Role in the film

She is first seen after Benji steals one of the Hunter's chickens. Benji tries to tell her that she needs to adopt the cubs, but attacks him. He then runs away and tries to show her the cubs. She then gets scared away by the rescue helicopter, along with her cub. Benji then follows her.

She and her cub are later seen still walking before the Timber Wolf ambushes Benji.

Later, Benji tries to tell her again. Angered, she then chases Benji, but falls off a rock.

Benji ultimately succeeds in having the Mother Cougar adopt the cubs and in the final scene heads in the direction of the search helicopter to be rescued.
