ALICE SPRINGS, Australia -- A burly kangaroo whose buff physique shot him to internet fame has died at the age of 12. "We have lost our beautiful boy, Roger," Chris Barnes, owner of the Kangaroo Sanctuary in Australia, announced on Saturday on Facebook. Roger, who was 6-foot-7 and weighed nearly 200 pounds in his prime, was rescued by Barnes as a joey after his mother was killed on a highway.
