Last night I dreamt I rescued a Drake (male mallard duck) that was being choked on some string.
The string was attached to a tractor which was driven around a field. The string was wrapping around something, reeling up and this duck got caught in the way.
First I had to grab the duck, then stop it stoggling (the word I use to describe a bird/rabbit/small animal that's getting cross when someone is trying to hold it firmly). Then unwind the string, and gently stroke it and talk to it.
Once it was free from the string I let it go. I half expected it to waddle off, bit it took a run, flapped, quacked loudly and flew off.
