Wild and domestic animals lived at the site of Moti Chher. A vast number of animal remains, including goats, sheep, cattle, and wild animals like deer species have been discovered. The site has caused so much devastation that all of the bones are in a state of chaos. Some animal bones have modifications like cut marks and charred marks, which indicates that the people exploited animals for dietary purposes. Of these cattle are commonly used.

Remains of fish and birds are included in the faunal assemblage. Bone objects like points, inlay and highly decorative comb are found here. Most of these objects are made from the long bones of cattle-sized animals. Due to the disturbances of the site majority of animal fragments are exposed and hence discovered. So complete animal bones are very rare.
