Do woodchucks hibernate all winter?

my cat got attacked by somethin and their is a woodchuck in my back yard so I want 2 figure out what gave him this huge hole in his right back leg.

Answer #1

could it have been a bite from another cat that has formed an absess and popped. thats what happend to my friends cat and it needed antibiotics and the hole closed up. cats bites can cause serious problems.

Answer #2


The winter den is generally used from October through February. The woodchuck is a true hibernator. His heart rate slows down to about 4 beats per minute, his body temperature is lowered to about 40 degrees, and his breathing is slowed considerably.

Meanwhile, you should definitely take your cat to the vet!
