Police are hunting for a female jogger nicknamed ’The Mad Pooper’ who keeps defecating outside a family’s home in Colorado.
The woman has left her excrement in front of a house in Colorado Springs about seven times in recent weeks.
Cathy Budde, who lives in the property, says her children caught the jogger squatting in the act outside their home.
She said the mystery jogger continues to defecate there even though there are public toilets in a nearby park.
Mrs Budde says she has confronted the woman, who always has paper towels tucked in her tights.
Mrs Budde told news station KKTV: ‘So I come outside, and I’m like, “Are you serious? Are you really taking a poop right here in front of my kids?” She’s like, “Yeah, sorry!”
