Roger, the beefcake boxing kangaroo who came to fame when a photo of him crushing
a metal bucket like a paper cup went viral in 2015, has died at the age of 12.

The death of the male kangaroo, who weighed 89kg (14 stone) and stood more than 182cm (6 feet) tall,
has sparked an outpouring of grief from his 1.3 million Facebook and Instagram fans.

“He always brought a smile to my face. Such a proud
strong boy,” the Australian singer Natalie Imbruglia wrote.

Roger was a joey when his mother was killed by a passing car near Alice Springs
in 2006. His luck turned when Chris Barnes drove by and gave him a new home.

In a tribute video posted to Facebook, Barnes said Roger inspired him to build the
Kangaroo Sanctuary to house the rapidly growing kangaroo and “a couple of his wives”.
