In Colorado Springs, there has been a rather stinky occurrence.

One female jogger has been named the “Mad Pooper” because she has been caught moving her bowels on a family’s front yard. The weekly outdoor bathroom session has been happening all over the neighborhood and is not meant to terrorize one family in particular.

Cathy Budde, one woman who spotted the woman, stated her children were the first to spot her. She told KKTV that they screamed, “There’s a lady taking a poop!” Yes, this would be hilarious to hear, but to actually see the event happening must have been horrifying.

Budde continues to note that she confronted the pooping lady. She said to her “Are you really taking a poop right here in front of my kids?!” The woman hilarious replied, “Yeah, sorry.”

According to BuzzFeed the woman “has been photographed by residents in ‘running attire’.” It is typically when she is running that this mysterious bathroom bandit has the urge to go.

Hilariously, the Colorado Springs Police Department has told the community to take photos or videos of the woman when they see her. This may sound like a horrifying image to have on your phone, but they are hoping that this will help them catch the pooper. News channel KKTV states that the woman could be charged with decent exposure and public defecation.

The ‘Mad Pooper’ has been on the loose for over a week now. Needless to say, the story has become an internet phenomenon and has received some national attention. Charmin, the toilet paper company has even made comments on the event. On Wednesday, Charmin tweeted that “If the #MadPooper turns herself in, we’ll give her a year’s supply of TP to help with her ‘runs’.”

To the woman who keeps pooping, yes you may be charged with a crime, but a lifetime supply of toilet paper isn’t too bad! We mean, TP rolls are expensive!
