Evelyn had trouble with being bullied at her old school. Instead of simply having her tough it out while it was being investigated and sorted out, Nick and Judy had her moved to a school on the outskirts of Zootopia, hopefully getting away from the worst of the inner city attitude.
A predator, a boy, a teenager.. Sango may be many things, but first and foremost, he is Evelyn’s best friend and would never hurt her. Luckily Judy knows not to judge someone for what they are. The same can’t be said about everyone else..
Nick and Judy never really told her about the.. Bad things about the Night Howlers case. They left out details such as them almost getting iced by a mafia boss, them almost falling to their deaths, them blowing up a train and almost dying… And the press conference. They were very careful not to let Evelyn read about it or see it, seeing how she was a victim of prejudice and bullying herself, just because of what she is.
Judy has always been a beacon of equality in Evelyns’ eyes, so seeing her mother in that situation and hearing her say those words was…. Well, it wasn’t easy. Brought back a lot of bad memories and opened up a number of old wounds. Not something she’ll get over in a jiffy..
