The Sheep Cops are supporting antagonists from Disney's fifty-fifth full-length animated feature film Zootopia. They appear to be two unnamed crooked sheep police officers of the ZPD who are working for Dawn Bellwether during her plot to demonize all predators and create a prey-supremacist society in Zootopia. It is unknown if they were legitimate, but corrupt police officers or thugs in disguise.
The Sheep Cops were possibly first seen near the beginning of the film when Judy Hopps enters the ZPD station before meeting up with Benjamin Clawhauser. Little did Judy know that two of her coworkers were involved with all the disappearances of predators in Zootopia, depending on whether they're real cops or not.
During the climax, upon learning from Doug Ramses, Woolter and Jesse about their subway lab being taken away by Judy and her partner Nick Wilde, Bellwether decided to take action, so she brings the Sheep Cops as backup.
The sheep cops later appeared when Nick and Judy arrived to the National History Museum, as they got hold of a weapon that fires serums (made out of a flower called a Night Howler) that can turn any predator savage. Upon meeting Bellwether, Judy is excited at first, but then suspciously asks how she knew where to find her and Nick, just as the Ram Thug corners them. Realizing now that the ploy is off, Bellwether orders both the Sheep Cops and the Ram Thug to get Nick and Judy.
After the Ram Thug head-butts Nick and Judy into a pit exhibit, Bellwether fires a serum at Nick in hopes that he would kill Judy and destroy all of the predators' reputation in Zootopia, thus allowing her to stay in power in a prey-supremacist society. The Sheep Cops all watch without expression as Nick attacks Judy, only to find out that the entire scene was a ploy to trick Bellwether into confessing her plan as Nick switched the serum with blueberries while Judy records the entire conversation with her carrot pen.
Judy then plays the confession just as the ZPD arrives to the scene, exposing Bellwether's scheme in the process. It can be implied that the Sheep Cops are arrested along with Bellwether and her other cronies for their crimes and sent to prison afterwards. It was never revealed if the ZPD had to arrest two of their own or two police imposters.
- It's unknown if they are corrupt police officers or thugs wearing costumes. Their possible cameo in the scene where Judy first enters the police station points towards the former though it's possible there are other sheep in the ZPD.
