More wallaby's were found dead in an oval on the outskirts of Queensland, where volunteers believe the animals may have been poisoned.

A total of 37 wallaby's are now dead after volunteers from The Agile Project in Cairns found four other animals in the Trinity Beach Sporting Precinct on Monday.

& # 39; I was confident that more would come & # 39 ;, Shai Ager from The Agile Project told Daily Mail Australia.

Mrs. Ager posted a live video of the group's discovery, with grim new details about the mysterious deaths of the wallabies.

A close-up of one of the dead animals showed that the eyes glowed white, which, along with other symptoms, including the mouth-lining animals, makes people believe the animals have been poisoned.

& # 39; It's very strange, & # 39; said Mrs. Ager to Daily Mail Australia. & # 39; I have never seen anything like this. & # 39;

& # 39; Many of my rescuers have been struggling with it lately. & # 39;

The Cairns Regional Council gathered some of the deceased animals and released a statement to Daily Mail Australia in which they believed that many of the dead were stressed by dogs being haunted in the oval by wallabies.

"There are still no indications of suspicious circumstances and early indications suggest that the deaths are related to stress, but this still needs to be verified," a Council spokesperson said in a statement.

But Mrs. Ager is skeptical, with the 21-year-old finding a lack of symptoms on many of the wallaby's to believe that they all died in fear while chasing other animals.

& # 39; They have no broken bones or dog wounds, & # 39; said Mrs. Ager.

& # 39; If they were all really scared and broke their necks, there would be no scratches, wounds, anything like that. & # 39;

Mrs. Ager noted that a spring-loaded gate, designed to release wallabies from the oval, & # 39; was left open at night, with her rescue volunteers finding around 80 healthy wallabies in the sports field.

She believes that the person who opens the gate can make the problem worse.

& # 39; Why they would like to be so cruel, I am not sure, & # 39; she said.

& # 39; I very much doubt that these deaths are due to natural causes and I feel very comfortable saying that. & # 39;

Autopsy results from the first round of dead wallaby's are expected in the coming days.
