Police Are On The Hunt For A Female Runner Who Keeps Pooping In Yards

Female runner who allegedly poops in yards.

Yes, this is actually happening.

There's a female runner in Colorado who keeps pooping in people's yards.


KKTV in Colorado Springs says the mysterious runner, known as the "Mad Pooper," is wanted by police.

Cathy Budde says her kids caught her first mid-squat, pants down and unashamed.

"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!'"

The family says it was just the first time it actually caught the runner doing it, but it wouldn't be the last. Budde estimates the runner leaves behind human waste at least once a week. She says "The Mad Pooper" has been at it for the last seven weeks.

A lack of an available bathroom apparently isn't the issue here, either.

Budde family members say one of the worst parts is they can't figure out the woman's motives.

"There's plenty of public restrooms less than a block away from where she's targeting. This is intentional."

KKTV showed the following image to help people identify her.
