If it was a wild one and not used to living in a cage, its due to stress and not being able to run in a large area and climb trees.

Taken from the wild, all they know is wild and locked in a cage is too stressful for them, So few even know how to properly care for them, their lifespan is very short.
The same holds true for a lot of small fur animals.

Just Bad pet owners.. Cage to small. Water not fresh. Not enough proper nutrition and space to exercise.
Zoos always keep them in enclosures. A cage may be to restrictive.

The cage is not big enough nor has the proper environment. A squirrel will get so stressed and excited by confinement or a threatening situation that it will go into shock and die. If it is not quite that bad, they will go crazy. That is why there are no pet squirrels. A suitable cage being one large enough to cover a large oak tree.

If they live in a cage, where else would you expect them to die?
