The mysterious mass deaths of 45 Wallaby's in Far North Queensland have become deeper, with a film that is foamy on the mouth before he dies in the arms of his savior.
A live video of the bodies was first shared on Facebook on August 22 by The Agile Project, a non-profit organization that aims to protect the people of Agile Wallabies in Trinity Beach, Cairns.
In the first video, ecologist Shai Ager said they found eight dead wallaby in the local AFL fields a few days after six other bodies were found in the same area.
The number has since skyrocketed, with new observations of dead wallaby's almost every day, bringing the total to 45.
& # 39; There have been strange Agile Wallaby deaths in Cairns, Northern Beaches, & # 39; said The Agile Project.
& # 39; We still have to see the toxicological results, but we will inform everyone as soon as they arrive. We now have 45 dead wallaby & # 39; s, mostly adults, but also some joeys. & # 39;
In a horrible video, a wallaby is filmed that exhales its last breath as it foams to the mouth.
& # 39; It foams out of the mouth and there appear to be no other breaks or injuries, & # 39; said Mrs. Ager in the video.
& # 39; A rescuer is on his way to help him and will take him to the vet, but it seems that he will pass before that time. & # 39;
She tells another volunteer that the wallaby is foaming at the mouth and asks if he has seen it happen before, on which he & # 39; no & # 39; responds.

The wallaby died in Mrs. Ager's arms while carrying him to the car, she told Yahoo News Australia.
In the series of videos & # 39; s, Mrs. Ager says that the springs on the one-way gate to the sports park have been tampered with.
Mrs. Ager spoke to Daily Mail Australia earlier this week and described the deaths as & # 39; very strange & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I have never seen anything like this & # 39 ;, she said.
& # 39; Many of my rescuers have been struggling with it lately. & # 39;
A spokesperson for the Cairns Regional Council told Daily Mail Australia that many of the deaths are presumably related to stress, because wallabies are being chased by dogs in the oval.
& # 39; 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, & they said in a statement.

Mrs. Ager was skeptical because they missed the symptoms of stress when 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;
In a statement to the ABC, a spokesperson for the Ministry of Environment and Science confirmed that she had been told about wallaby mortality.
& # 39; DES natural officers conducted a detailed inspection, but all wallaby carcasses were removed, & # 39; said the spokesman.
& # 39; They could not find evidence of breaches of Queensland's nature conservation laws.
& # 39; Anyone who has evidence regarding this incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1800 333 000 or DES at 1300 130 372. & # 39;
In the most recent video shared on Tuesday, Mrs. Ager said that the team would not move seven extra bodies so that DES could come and inspect the scene.
