Police seek 'Mad Pooper' who defecates outside Colorado family's home


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Sinclair Broadcast Group) - For the past seven weeks, an unidentified woman called "The Mad Pooper" has been defecating outside a Colorado Springs family's home.

The Buddes came up with the moniker after seeing a runner leave her feces in front of their house at least once a week.

"They are like, 'There's a lady taking a poop!' So, I come outside and I'm like ... 'Are you serious?'" Cathy Budde told KKTV of the time her children first witnessed the woman. "'Are you really taking a poop right here in front of my kids?' She's like, 'Yeah, sorry!'"

Budde sees the humor in her predicament but has grown frustrated.

She explained to KKTV, "I put a sign on the wall that's like, 'Please, I'm begging you, please stop.' ... She ran by it like 15 times yesterday, and she still pooped."

Police say the woman could face indecent exposure and public defecation charges for her bizarre behavior.

Sgt. Johnathan Sharketti told KKTV, "It's abnormal, it's not something I've seen in my career. For someone to repeatedly do such a thing ... it's uncharted territory for me."

Anyone with information about the suspect's identity is asked to call Colorado Springs Police at 719-444-7240.
