Vanilla's wallaroo not cross-breed
CORRECTION: In its story reporting the recapture of rapper Vanilla Ice's pet wallaroo - Bucky Buckaroo - the BBC News website stated that the animal was a cross between a kangaroo and a wallaby.

In fact, a wallaroo is a species of kangaroo in its own right, sometimes called the great wallaroo.

Bucky Buckaroo and Pancho, Vanilla Ice's pet goat, broke out of a relative's back yard in November. The story has since been changed.
