My younger brother was strangled by a sheep.
The kanji means strangle and this vocab is the verb version of that: to strangle.
There is another word, 絞る which means "to wring out" that looks very similar. You know that this one is "to strangle" because it has める sticking out of it. Imagine that in the mail める you get a letter that says "I'm going to strangle you!" When you get this in the mail, you know it's about strangling.
The thing that is threatening to strangle you is actually a sheep (し)! The sheep comes to your house and says, "here's the sheep mail!" and then tries to strangle you. It puts its hard feet on your neck though it's pretty ineffective.
