Chapter 87:20
Animals on Shabbos

20. Animals or fowl that are not yet trained to return to their pens (or cages) in the evening, and even those that had once been trained, but then rebelled and ran away, may not be forced into their pens or into the house on Shabbos (1). Furthermore, even if they are in one's home or in their pen, but the door is open, it is forbidden to close it on Shabbos, thereby trapping them inside, because that would constitute a violation of the prohibition against trapping.

FOOTNOTES:

(1) One of the 39 avos melachos (prototype prohibited activity on Shabbos) is trapping an animal ("Tzeida").
