From what I've read, yes. Wikipedia says the type of wallabies shown in the video, agile wallabies, face "no major threats, however in New Guinea it is shot for bushmeat and in Australia it is sometimes killed by farmers as a pest." Perhaps it's similar to deer in some parts of the US in that regard. They are constantly scavenging for food and get into trash bins and feed on garden plants like deer can. Some wallaby populations are shrinking and protected, but these agile wallabies are not in that category.
