"These include hunting snakes in an effective pack formation and dispatching by cracking them, whip-like, into the air."
A mutt we owned (or owned us) when I was a kid killed rattlesnakes in just this fashion. It made for hours of amusement in the boonies of West Texas.

As a kid, I had a Dachshund (!) that was quite the effective snake hunter, until a copperhead got him right on the nose. The venom went straight to his brain and he died in my arms in the back seat of my parents' car, on the way to the vet. He was one heck of a dog, very brave. No sense of proportion whatsoever, would jump on a Great Dane if it came into "his" yard. He wasn't much with strangers, but he loved, and I mean loved, his people. I still miss him, it's been 30 years.
