Colorado Springs Police Looking for ‘The Mad Pooper’


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The Colorado Springs Police Department is looking for public assistance to catch “The Mad Pooper.”

This is a woman out for a jog who routinely relieves herself in yards, parks, and even by a Walmart. This despite having restrooms available near every location.

Colorado Springs Family Has Had Enough of the Shh . . . enanigans

Consequently, a Colorado Springs family in particular has spent weeks trying to get the mystery woman they’ve dubbed “The Mad Pooper” to stop defecating in their neighborhood, right outside their house, reported

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!'”

This Is Not an Emergency Pit Stop, It’s Shh . . . ored up With Signs of a Crime

Yet the family says it was not a single incident that could be explained away as an emergency. Budde estimates the runner leaves behind human waste at least once a week. Moreover, she says “The Mad Pooper” has been at it for the last seven weeks.

Therefore, she can’t help but laugh at the absurdity of the whole situation. And the deplorable adjectives that could be used to explain the public nuisance are endless.

“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.

Colorado Springs Police Baffled by Shh . . . ameless Behavior

So, now the Colorado Springs Police Department is involved. And they are just as baffled by the caper.

“It’s abnormal, it’s not something I’ve seen in my career,” Sgt. Jonathan Sharketti said. “For someone to repeatedly do such a thing … it’s uncharted territory for me.”

Officers have asked Budde to take photos of the woman to help identify her. Especially relevant, they say the runner could be facing charges of indecent exposure and public defecation.

“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,” Budde admits, defeated.

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.”

Now they’re hoping this story and photos posted online will help flush her out.
