Do Groundhogs Eat Rabbits?

While rabbits are herbivores, groundhogs (a type of marmot, also known as woodchucks) are omnivores. They occasionally consume other small animals, such as baby birds and baby rabbits, and they will attack animals of a similar size that they consider to be a threat to their territory or well-being. Rabbits and groundhogs often share territories in the wild, and groundhog attacks on rabbits are not uncommon.
