The Hunter is the secondary antagonist of the 1987 film Benji the Hunted.
The Hunter is first seen when he shoots down a cougar. Benji attempts to comfort the dying animal, but he is chased away by the hunter, who then retrieves the dead cat and marches off with it draped over his shoulders. Benji subsequently encounters four orphaned cougar cubs, belonging to the killed cougar, and he attempts to shield them from predation.
The Hunter last appears when he captures Benji trying to steal one of his dead birds and ties him to a tree. Timber Wolf tries to kill Benji and at first, the Hunter doesn't notice him. Timber Wolf comes back to the Hunter's cabin again and the Hunter shoots at Timber Wolf, but misses, which ends up with Timber Wolf running off into the forest. While the Hunter cleans up the mess, Benji finally steals one of his birds to feed the Cougar cubs.
