COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado — This kind of biathlon hopefully doesn’t turn up in the Olympics any time soon.
A Colorado Springs homeowner says a jogger has repeatedly taken a dump on her lawn as she has run past, earning her the nickname, the “Mad Pooper.”
Cathy Budde says the smelly situation has gone on for about seven weeks and that the jogger continues to do it even though the family has confronted her and asked her to stop.
Budde says her kids first caught the culprit mid-squat and ran in to tell her mother.
“They are like, ‘There’s a lady taking a poop!’ So I come outside, and I’m like … ‘are you serious?'” she told KKTV. “‘Are you really taking a poop right here in front of my kids!?’ She’s like, ‘Yeah, sorry!'”
And that wasn’t the end of it.
“Two other times we’ve caught her — caught her yesterday — she changed up her time a little bit because she knew I was watching,” Budde said.
Police say they have been informed and that the jogger could face charges of indecent exposure and public defecation.
“It’s abnormal, it’s not something I’ve seen in my career,” Colorado Springs Police Sgt. Johnathan Sharketti said. “For someone to repeatedly do such a thing … it’s uncharted territory for me.”
Budde has turned to taking photos of the woman in the hope that she can now be identified.
“There’s plenty of public restrooms less than a block away from where she’s targeting. This is intentional,” she said.
