Firefighters rescuing ducklings

A group of ducks can be called a raft, team or paddling on the water, and
a flock in flight. They're also called a brace.

A 'brace' can mean any two animals tied together. When used with regards to small game, it nearly always is in the context of transporting them from the hunt to the hearth.

Perhaps a bit too dark for the above story, yeah?
