Role in the Film
The ZNN makes two brief appearances in the film, reporting on the news of Zootopia.Fabienne Growley and her co-anchor, Peter Moosebridge, describe Zootopia as a "city gripped by fear", as they report a caribou in critical condition as a result of a mauling by a savage polar bear, the twenty-seventh case of the week of a predator going savage. Her co-anchor follows her announcement by stating that a peace rally had been organized by Gazelle and was marred by protest.
In their second and final report, they announce that Assistant Mayor Bellwether, the mastermind responsible for making the predators savage, has been arrested. They also discuss Mayor Lionheart's denial of any knowledge of her plans and actions, and how he was trying to protect the city, and an antidote for those affected by the night howlers, which is proving effective.
