There’s a 99 percent chance that this will be the shittiest news story you read today.
Police are searching for a woman who has been named “the Mad Pooper,” after repeatedly doing her business while jogging through the neighborhood of Colorado Springs. The matter is particularly frustrating for local Cathy Budde since she’s found waste outside of her house seven times in recent weeks — and her children once caught the “pooper” in the act.
“They are like, ‘There’s a lady taking a poop!’ So I come outside, and I’m like … ‘Are you serious?'” Buddy said to KKTV. “‘Are you really taking a poop right here in front of my kids!?’ She’s like, ‘Yeah, sorry!'”
Budde put a sign up around her house telling the lady to stop, but the jogger keeps relieving herself around the house, and Budde’s family thinks its intentional since there are public restrooms nearby. The police got involved after receiving complaints, though cops seem as baffled by the whole ordeal as everyone else.
“It’s abnormal, it’s not something I’ve seen in my career,” said Colorado Springs Sgt. Johnathan Sharketti. “For someone to repeatedly do such a thing…it’s uncharted territory for me.”
Officials say the “pooper” is likely to be charged with indecent exposure and public defecation once caught.
