Duke Weaselton is a petty thief operating in the criminal underworld of the city of Zootopia, and out on its streets. He's a hustler, a con man and a burglar. And he sells bootleg DVD copies of popular movies out on the street. But he also has teamed up, in secret, with Assistant Mayor Bellwether and her henchman, Doug, to ship in quantities of the dangerous night howler flowers. They contain a powerful psychotropic chemical which Doug is converting into a serum. When that serum is shot at a predatory mammal (where the chemical serum is encased in a pellet that bursts upon contact with the skin...the serum then being absorbed into the skin of the target), it can cause him or her to revert to dangerous primitive urges and violent predatory behavior. It can even adversely affect prey mammals, even turning them primitively aggressive. For this, it is assumed that Weaselton is being well-paid. However, he's little more than a stooge in a larger and darker scheme.
As ZPD officer Judy Hopps, with the assistance of Nick Wilde, begin to have trouble getting to the source of the strange and violent behavior of many predatory mammal citizens who have gone missing, they gain some unexpected help from Mr. Big, who threatens to "ice" Duke if he doesn't reveal the secret of the night howlers.
