COLORADO SPRINGS, CO — Police in Colorado Springs are trying to flush out a female jogger who they say won’t stop pooping on local lawns.
The fecal fiend has targeted Cathy Budde, who told KKTV her children first alerted her to the woman a few weeks ago, and then multiple times during the past month.
Budde said that she was shocked to find the woman — who she’s nicknamed “The Mad Pooper” — in broad daylight with her pants down, crapping on the sidewalk outside her home around seven weeks ago.
“They are like, ‘There’s a lady taking a poop!’ So I come outside, and I’m like … ‘are you serious?'” Budde recalled. “‘Are you really taking a poop right here in front of my kids!?’ She’s like, ‘Yeah, sorry!'”
According to Budde, after the first incident, the woman apologized.
At first, Budde said that she thought that the woman had an accident, or some sort of health issue, and decided to brush off the incident. Since then, though, she says the jogger has defecated on her lawn at least once a week.
Police have asked Budde to take pictures of the woman so they can try to identify her — which she has done. She has even resorted to putting up a sign asking the woman to stop.
Commenters have taken to social media to try and identify the mystery jogger using hashtags #MadPooper and #FemmeFecale — and Charmin even tweeted to offer her a supply of toilet paper.
The Colorado Springs Police Department said an active investigation is ongoing, and that the mysterious suspect could face charges of indecent exposure and public defecation.
“It’s abnormal, it’s not something I’ve seen in my career,” Sergeant Johnathan Sharketti told KKTV. “For someone to repeatedly do such a thing … it’s uncharted territory for me.”
