When ya gotta go, ya gotta go. I GET THAT.  This, however, is just not cool.

Denver's Park Hill residents are tired of being pooped on. There's been a man who has been literally running around and pooping in and around Denver's Park Hill neighborhood.

According to Fox 31, a man was caught on surveillance dropping his pants and pooping in the neighborhood including an alley where cameras caught him in broad daylight.

Residents say they've seen the man, who appears to be exercising do it a few times in the same place...an alleyway. Witnesses say the man is coming prepared with toilet paper but not a plastic bag to pick anything up or disposing of anything properly.

I'm not going to lie, while I'm running, it ALWAYS makes me want to poop. It doesn't matter if I go before or how I feel when I start my run.

Not to dwell on this topic, I usually know about how long it will take for the urge to hit while running so I always make sure I run near a place I know I can use a restroom. There are lots of them near my house because they're building lots of houses so I just borrow the construction crew's portapotty.

While I can understand this man's problem, he HAS to understand that this is NOT how you handle the problem in public and/or outdoors.

This isn't the first time this has been an issue in Colorado, this was before I moved here but back in 2017 the "Mad Pooper" struck Colorado Springs and while I was living halfway across the country up in Seattle, I remember hearing about this in the news.

Here are some tips on pooping outside and how to properly do it and pick up after yourself.
