Something is cutting the Echinachea off near bottom and eating the leaves near the bottom of the plant. Any idea what? Woodchuck? Rabbit?

Rabbits prefer tender new shoots and will eat coneflowers in spring. Stems and tough old leaves are woodchuck items. Your culprit could be a raccoon but I'm leaning toward woodchuck.
