In the past, Oscar was the star attraction of the Raccoon Zoo and many people gathered to see most of his performances at the Elephant Stage. After the t-Virus spread throughout the city, Oscar became infected along with the rest of the animals. Now the zombie elephant rampages inside the undead zoo.
The opening cutscene of "wild things" shows four human zombies feeding on a dead rhinoceros. A huge shadow appears; the zombies look up, and Oscar appears behind them. He then furiously sends them flying with his trunk.
