The only creatures that I have ever noticed caught in netting on our
trees, berries, or vegetables have been toads and a garter snake. Not
sure quite how the snake got entangled, but I found it too late.

it. I had to cut it out.
What, the rattles get caught in the net? :-)
This summer, I found one dead robin in a net I'd thrown over a currant
bush. That taught me that I can't just let the excess netting lie on the
ground. Next year, I'll try to tie up any extra netting into a neat
ball. And keep the rest of it fairly tight and smooth.
