Animals hibernate in the winter and live off land in the other seasons. Poachers are trying to kill the animals. Bears, raccoons, squirrels, skunks, deers, bobcats, coyotes, and mountain lions are animals you will find in Deciduous forest. Because of this they use the trees for shelter and protection from other predators as well as food or water.
