Roger the ripped kangaroo dies of natural causes in NT sanctuary

Roger The Extremely Ripped Roo Dies Not Mirin But At Age 12

Roger, the original alpha male and phenomenally yolked roo from Alice Springs Kangaroo Sanctuary, sadly passed away from old age over the weekend.

Roger, who was 6 foot 7 inches and weighed almost 200 pounds in his prime, was rescued by Barnes as a joey after his mother was killed on a highway.

Roger shot to viral fame in 2015 thanks when a photo of him squashing a bucket lit up social media. So we will reflect on his life today and for many years to come.

After mice food delay, SpaceX set for space station resupply launch Wednesday
SpaceX CEO Elon Musk tweeted that a grid fin hydraulic pump stalled was the likely cause of the failed landing attempt. The mission was SpaceX s 16th mission for NASA as part of a long-term contract to ferry supplies to space.

The muscle-bound animal stood 2.007 metres from tip to tail and weighed in at 89 kilograms, putting him a head above the rest of the kangaroos at the sanctuary.

Posting on the sanctuary's Facebook and Instagram yesterday, owner and founder Chris Brolga gave a short eulogy to the unbelievably jacked roo, who was the reason why Brolga and his team put together the sanctuary some ten years ago.

In a 2016 clip from Kangaroo Dundee, a National Geographic documentary series about Barns' work at the sanctuary, Barns is shown ambling down a dirt path on crutches after he injured his knee sprinting away from Roger in hopes of avoiding a fight.

"There are no single girls in the bush", Barns said to Buzzfeed.

In January, Mr Barns explained in a video that Roger was "retired" and was less aggressive as he was getting older. "It's a handsome shady tree and we found him underneath that tree". The last photo taken of Roger showed him idling on the ground as he waited to be fed.

In the wild, kangaroos live for about 10 years but can live longer in captivity. He had a great life and was much loved by all.
