Vehari Wildlife Park was established in 1988 on an area of 16 acres (6 ha) at a cost 3 million rupees by Government of Punjab. The park has been reported in 2007 to have lost "a dozen of animals" in past 6 years due to negligence and unavailability of a veterinary doctor.
The park housed a total of 73 mammals of 7 species and 139 birds of 14 species back in 2004. These may have included captive lions, blue bull, hog deer, common peafowl, species of monkeys, rabbits, pheasants, waterfowls and parrots.
