A jogger in Colorado Springs has taken the phrase ‘never give up’ to a whole new level.

A family has spent weeks trying to get an unidentified woman, whom they have dubbed the ‘Mad Pooper’, to stop defecating in front of their house.

Cathy Budde says her children were the first ones to catch the runer red-handed - shorts down and squatting, according to a report on KKTV 11.

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

Budde suspects the woman defecates at least once a week and has been doing it for the past seven weeks.

The exasperated family resorted to contacting the police department to curb the menace. “It’s abnormal, it’s not something I’ve seen in my career,” Sgt Johnathan Sharketti said, according to KKTV 11. “For someone to repeatedly do such a thing ... it’s uncharted territory for me.”

The Budde family has neither been able to identify the woman nor stop her from pooping. Cops have asked the family to try to take pictures of the woman who 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 told KKTV 11.
