Cages are often used now as a source to confine animals. These provide as a habitat to the
animal, and since they've advanced so greatly, they are now specially designed to fit that species
of animal. Captive breeds of birds, rodents, reptiles, and even larger animals have also been
known to be confined in a cage as a domesticated animal (also known as a pet). Captivity is a
common purpose of the cage. Cages also serve a purpose as a hunting tool, often used to seize
an animal. This is a common and illegal purpose of the cage, as poaching is illegal itself. These
type of cages are used to trap an animal, or hold them for a certain period of time. U.S.
PresidentTheodore Roosevelt used a cage himself to capture a bear, as the cage serves a
purpose for capturing large animals.
