Have zoo officials discussed this "escape" with the local Oryx?

Fun fact--Wisconsn isn't the Badger State because of the animal.  In Ye Olde days dudes who mined lead in a town now called Mineral Point carved out hillside dwellings on the cheap, like a burrowing badger.

I thought that was common knowledge, but then I did spend four years in school in WI

Interesting.  I thought it was because the few people I know from Wisconsin are always bugging me for stuff.

Strongest enemy in the game. There is a reason the guy is reloading. He just put 7 .45 caliber rounds into that farker, and all it did was piss it off.

CSB:
We had an Aussie Cattle Dog for a while who wasn't happy in the city. We got her a job as a farm dog where she was much happier.

She decided that moles were Unauthorized and did her best to wipe them out using a strategy a lot like the badger and coyote. She would lead one of the barn cats out to  one end of a mole's run then dig like crazy at the other end. If she didn't dig up the mole and catch it it would pop up out of the other exit to its burrow where the cat would nab it.

80,000 cheese eating Wisconsinites jumping around on an old stadium?

Sounds like a premise for a disaster movie.

Last seen walking into a bar.  When asked for a comment, the bartender said "I think they left after eating a horse, damnedest thing I ever saw.  Except for that Nun's bachelorette party with strippers dressed as a rabbi and preist."

I sound fat: 80,000 cheese eating Wisconsinites jumping around on an old stadium?

It's really just the student section. But when they renovated it a while back they had a whole team of engineers studying just the structural soundness of that part. They studied the rate at which people "jump around," and then asked, okay, what would happen if ~10,000 ~100-kg masses all took off and landed at the same time? Then they rebuilt accordingly.

I'm not kidding; this is a thing that actually happened.

In any event, buildings are generally more tolerant of compression than they are shear. Let's just pray twerking or some other rapid side-to-side movement never catches on at UW. (For several reasons.)
