Adorable Orphaned Kangaroo Loves His Stuffed Bunny

A super-cute kangaroo and his soft toy rabbit have become inseparable after he was sent the companion by a kind-hearted fan.

His name is Roger and he was rescued as a baby after his mum was hit by a car in 2006.

Sanctuary staff gave him the toy to play with after being concerned that he might be lonely.

And after initially attacking the stuffed bunny, they are now inseparable! Adorable!

Chris Barnes, who works at Alice Springs Kangaroo Sanctuary in Australia, where the kangaroo lives, said: "When I gave it to him he snatched it off me really quickly and proceeded to attack it, giving it a 'bear hug' and wrestling it, even hugging it and kicking out as he would do in kick boxing match, he's an expert kick boxer."

"After about 10 minutes of not giving up his bunny, Roger lost interest in it, but when I tried to take it off him he tried to attack me instead, which is a daily ritual.
