I hadn't heard of Foxing, but got it because it was an obvious association with cunning. The only other one I hadn't heard was Dogging (at least not in this context). I'm assuming they are more widely used in the US, just not in the UK. Some of these would benefit from the whole phrase to provide the context. Wolfing it down, Ratting somebody out, ect.

The verbs bear and hawk are not derived from the animals. They are just coincidentally the same.

Good one. There's also to ape, isn't there, and fly, although I don't know if the verb came from the animal.
