COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) – Police are searching for a woman who has been seen repeatedly defecating in a neighborhood while out running.

Cathy Budde says her kids saw the woman mid-squat and came running back in the house to tell her.

“They are like, ‘There’s a lady taking a poop!’ So I come outside, and I’m like … ‘are you serious?'” Budde said to the runner. “‘Are you really taking a poop right here in front of my kids?!’ She’s like, ‘Yeah, sorry!'”

Budde says the runner is doing it in her neighborhood at least once a week for the last seven weeks, so they nicknamed her “The Mad Pooper.”

“Two other times we’ve caught her – caught her yesterday – she changed up her time a little bit because she knew I was watching.”

Now the Colorado Springs Police Department is involved, and say the runner could face charges of indecent exposure and public defecation.

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

According to the Budde family, there are plenty of restrooms less than a block away from where the woman is running, and so believe “this is intentional.”

If you can identify the runner, please call the Colorado Springs Police Department at 719-444-7240.

    Dammit Joe Kenda… we need you!!

    1. We need Joe Friday and his partner Bill Gannon on this case. Dragnet never fails a case, no matter how revolting.

  2. Local police will probably end up shooting here, claiming they saw her pulling a concealed weapon which will latter be found to have been a turtleheading turd.

    1. The locals of the neighborhood she is polluting probably wouldn’t mind…Good riddance!

    2. Shoot a video with a phone and post it to YouTube. SOMEBODY will recognize her…

    3. Sam Parson says:

      I would hope so. People like this don’t get a right to live in society and should be made example of.

  3. Ken Burke says:

    At least she’s not full of it anymore!!!!

  4. Global warming pales in comparison to this, which is the end of the world or the behind of it.

  5. “uncharted territory” … :-D Some days you read the online “news” just for the great laughs.

    Heeee! We have a bunch of those folks here. In our kinder moments, we call then “transients” — they’re imported into our neighborhood by the new lightrail system, which one can ride for free. When they’re ejected at the end of the line, about a block away, they come into our alleys, which they use as their toilets and campgrounds. If some jogger with the (heh) runs is not allowed to do this, surely our honored vagrants should be directed to the nearest fast-food joint’s bathrooms, too?

  6. Dale Warren says:

    Maybe this person is a radical, alt-Left, anti-American, socialist, Progressive who simply self-identifies as a pet dog. I mean, if people can self-identify their own preferred gender regardless of the objective reality of science and biology, on what basis can prohibiting someone from self-identifying his or her own species and acting accordingly be considered out of bounds and over the top? Local Progressive Democrats could just mandate the issuance of pooper scoopers to every resident—at taxpayer expense, of course.

    1. Bobo Brazil says:

      And maybe you’re just a faqing imbecile who likes to bray brainless gibberish on public forums. Seems like that is the case.

    2. Albert Bea says:

      Then they’ll probably name the street after her and celebrate with parades, where people poop all over the street. She’s so brave, isn’t she? The new American hero.

    3. I agree completely and I’ve said the same thing many times. If one can pick which gender they feel like being and insist others go along with it, why can’t one pick their species? Seems only fair. Meow, meow, meow.

    4. Sam Parson says:

      Then the ones who reported “it” will go to jail for using the wrong pronoun. (True story btw, new law in California.. look it up)

  7. It’s cool I see neighbors walking their animals and letting them unload on public and even others private property. Yeah some pick it up some don’t we all know this. She is just letting people see how we differentiate between humans and other animals, we assume she should be charged with a crime or at very least made to stop it. But that same day, maybe same person who complained will walk a slaved animal right in front of another persons house and let go unload. Stop the insanity, use only your own property to unload and no one cares.

  8. I lived in ABQ a few years ago in the Nob Hill district. There was a lady there doing the same thing. We called her the Nob Hill Pooper. She was never caught but it could be the same person, maybe she moved to Colorado.

    1. Carter Gwynn says:

      So is it true? Does shyt really roll downhill?

  9. maybe she just wants to prove a point. there are so many people around my apartment area who just let their dogs defecate and they dont clean up may be she just came across such people while jogging and decided – if they can do it why cant i

  10. Come to Los Angeles. I have homeless people “pooping” in my yard DAILY. We are about to have a hepatitis outbreak. One guy…really? How quaint!

  11. Chris Snyder says:

    When finished, did she wipe her Trump?

  12. Take a BB Gun, pump it 10 times, put a pellet in her butt cheek, I bet she never does it again.

  13. Someone needs to give here a good swat while she’s in the act with a rolled up newspaper, otherwise she won’t know why she’s being punished. It’s the same way I house trained my dog.

  14. “Runner’s Trots” is actually a thing – Google Paula Radcliffe at the London Marathon in 2005. She did the same thing, right there in front of the international cameras and everyone looking on…!

  15. Chris Snyder says:

    Do the same as with cats… turn on the lawn sprinkler.

  16. Harry Buskin says:

    She’s just doing what any canine b1tc# would do. Call it “inclusive” behavior.

    You guys are SO classy!

  17. She’s either Nigerian of has some weird fetish.

  18. Jack Webb says:

    She’s getting rid if more Hillary emails.

  19. It’s obvious. She is from India.

  20. Brus Al says:

    Gives new meaning to ‘she’s got “the runs”‘!

  21. Carl Mayo says:

    this is not the first time this has happened. a female jogger was doing the same thing in albuquerque nm back in 2013. she “visited” the same house 4 times before the owner caught her on his security cam and went to the local news with it.

  22. James Newman says:

    Hmm, looks like a case of the trots while doing her trots. So, she evacuates before leaving the area. Perhaps it’s better she does all this elsewhere – maybe New York – say in Flushing Meadows? Her actions are such a waste and she apparently doesn’t even try to paper them over!

  23. Dave Ware says:

    does she carry her own skid paper?

  24. They questioned the pig & she didn’t know squat.

  25. Phil Morse says:

    she plops to the sound of her own drum and it’s defecating.

    1. James Newman says:

      I think she’s relieved to hear you say this.

  26. You know, public defecation is extremely common in India.
    So, if she is not Indian, then this is cultural appropriation.

  27. Maybe this is a new liberal thing – if it’s natural, then why not? I saw people peeing in public in Syracuse, NY many years ago. Thankfully, I moved from there long ago….it’s probably worse now.

  28. Something smells funny about this story.

  29. Tracy Galvin says:

    I think “The Mad Shatter” would’ve been better. This case stinks I tell ya’ !

  30. Liberal transplant from San Francisco, no doubt.

  31. She’s in training for a new Olympic sport. Basically the summer version of the biathlon.


  33. Kent Marsh says:

    Sounds like a case of the “Runs”.
    My dog does that when he jogs.

  34. Jay Kerouac says:

    Just follow her home and leave the poop at her door.

  35. She received a chain letter to get a beautiful, green lawn. If no one dares break the chain, in 3-4 weeks, 3479 people will come by her address, 235 Corncob Alley, and def in her front yard.

  36. Tammy Tisher says:

    Muslims do this all the time. There are issues with refugees pooping in grocery stores, etc in Europe. They have started posting signs for no pooping.
    Seem if they have the urge, they just go where ever they please.

  37. snailmailtrucker says:

    Build the F-ing Wall !

  38. She might not be doing this on purpose. This lady could have a medical condition…a GI problem causing her issues or mental illness.

  39. How is it that I just intuitively know that this woman voted for Hillary?

  40. As the old song goes, ‘every party needs a pooper thats why I invited you, party pooper…. party pooper’

  41. She must be a Clinton voter trying to get the “taste” out of her.

  42. David Alster says:

    Lighten up folks, it is normal bodily function.

  43. She’s marking her territory . . .

  44. You have to be shltting me . . . . . : /

  45. Arne Yoga says:

    To be fair, if they charge her they also have to charge Trump. He’s been taking a dump on the constitution, nation, and the entire world for months now.

  46. Jog A Little Run,
    Take A Little Dump;
    Get ‘Down’, Tonight.

  47. Hey, at least she’s house trained and isn’t doing it inside the house!

  48. Bless her for fighting back against the dogs who poop everywhere.

  49. By golly, I think she needs to just fess up and tell everybody just how she accomplishes this amazing regularity……Same time/same place….damned impressive…….Could it be the family size bowl of chili and bag of corn chips just before her run?………………………………………………………………………………..

    Sorry…that was crude…Probably does nothing but Ken-L-Ration and pure water.

  50. marti4jeffco says:

    I think the police need to talk to her husband in private to find out if there is something he is not saying. She keeps talking, but no husband comments. I wouldn’t be surprised if there is more to this story than we know. Either this woman is mentally ill, or this family has some connection to her. This has gotten a lot of public attention, and it appears she wants that. She has to know she has been on TV. She is clearly mad at someone for something, or needs help.

  51. Jim Gravelyn says:

    A good detective would keep a log of every jogger entering the neighborhood, then narrow it down by a process of elimination to the guilty party.

  52. If you don’t like people leaving Golden Logs on your lawn turn on your sprinklers. Oh wait, you could be arrested for doing that, if it happened on a non watering day.

  53. John Dillon says:

    Must be a lib trying to turn the country third world. Derp.

  54. Those poop and scoop fines in Colorado need to be raised! Mile high is getting high and now they’re piling high!

  55. Just check the local DNC clubhouse. They’re full of shiite.

  56. Jason Wert says:

    this story leaves me feeling down in the dumps.
