Benji shines in another simple but engrossing dog tale.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that an adult mom cougar is shot and killed in this wilderness tale; there are also some non-explicit animal fights, with a few casualties (mainly from a cliff fall). Be aware that there is very little dialogue or many human characters here; some kids may find this odd or need help understanding the story.
