All over Zootopia, prey animals became distrustful of predators as even more of them went savage. Saddened at having caused so much trouble,Judy quit the ZPD.
Judy returned to Bunny burrow. While working at her family' s farm stand, Judy was startled to hear her dad warning kids to stay away from the night howlers, flowers that made animals go crazy.
“Night howlers are flowers, not wolves," Judy realized. “The flowers are making predators go savage.That’s it!”
Judy dropped everything, jumped into the family pick up truck, and drove back to Zootopia.
Judy wanted Nick to help her find out who was making predators go crazy. But first she owed him an apology. She said:I really am a dumb bunny. Can you forgive me?
Nick played back a recording: I really am adumb bunny.””Don t worry,” he said. “You can erase it—in forty-eight hours.”
Judy gave Nick a hug. They were partners again!
Judy and Nick started by questioning the weasel Judy had arrested. He admitted that he had been stealing night howler bulbs and selling them to a secret laboratory. The lab was in an old subway car.
To get in, Judy and Nick had to sneak past the guards and shimmy through a window.The lab was turning night howler flowers into a bright-blue serum. Judy sprang into action. She kicked the lab worker out and locked the doors.
“We have to get this evidence to the ZPD!"
Judy and Nick tried to escape in the subway car, but the guard rams climbed aboard. The train careened through the city.When it pulled into a station, the train derailed, Nick and Judy jumped off just as it exploded!
Judy couldn’t believe it. They' d lost the evidence!“Except for this,” said Nick, holding up a case of serum.
Nick followed Judy into the Natural History Museum—a short cut to the ZPD. Inside the museum, Bellwether was wailing."'go ahead and take that case,” she said.
Judy gasped. Mayor Bellwether was behind the whole plot! Bellwether knew there were many more prey animals than predators. All she had to do was make prey afraid of predators一then the prey animals, with their greater numbers, could take over Zootopia. And Bellwether would be their leader! Bellwether' s thugs cornered Judy and Nick and grabbed the case.
Then Bellwether shot Nick with a serum-filled dart! The fox growled一he was going savage! Judy backed away.
“Your plan won’t work," Judy bravely told Bellwether.
“Fearalways works," she said. “And I' II dart a million more predators to proveit!”
Suddenly, Nick stopped growling. He and Judy had swapped the night howler serum with blue berries!
Bellwether was furious. Framed Lionheart. I can frame you, too!” But Nick had recorded Bellwether' S confession on Judy's carrot pen.
With the case closed and the missing animals recovered, doctors quickly discovered a cure for those animals that had gone savage.
Nick became the first fox to jointhe ZPD. He and Judy became partners on the police force.
