―Dr. Madge Honey Badger about the savagery of the missing mammals

Dr. Madge Honey Badger is a female honey badger and a doctor in Zootopia.

Role in the Film

Madge trying to reason with Lionheart

Dr. Madge is assigned by Mayor Lionheart to research the condition of the 15 savage mammals at Cliffside Asylum. However, she is unable to find the cause of their savagery.

When confronted by a furious Lionheart, Dr. Madge says that it might be time to "consider their biology", as the only animals going savage are predators. She also states that the public needs to be made aware of this, only to be protested by Lionheart, who reminds her that he himself is a predator.

Unbeknownst to them, they are being spied on by Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde. They then hear Judy's phone go off, to which Dr. Madge calls upon security to sweep the area.

Madge being arrested

Dr. Madge and Lionheart are arrested when Judy notifies the police of the missing mammals, and Judy, later pressed to answer questions about the missing predators having turned savage, ultimately repeats what Dr. Madge told Lionheart, verbatim.


Mayor Lionheart

Dr. Madge's relationship with the Mayor of Zootopia seems to be fairly tenuous. At the Mayor's insistence, Dr. Madge is put onto the case of investigating why the predators around Zootopia are going savage.

Lionheart angrily scolding Dr. Madge for her failures

In one of her brief meetings with Mayor Lionheart, which can be assumed to be fairly regular, she hypothesizes that the savagery may be down to biology.

Unbeknownst to her or Mayor Lionheart, Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde have been listening in on the conversation, and both Madge and Mayor Lionheart are arrested. Later on, Judy uses Madge's explanation, therefore accidentally incriminating all predators.
