Toilet paper giant Charmin offers 'Mad Pooper' reward

Toilet paper giant Charmin is offering a reward to wipe up the Colorado Springs Mad Pooper caper.

The Pikes Peak region gained unwanted fame after news reports revealed that a female jogger was leaving steaming deposits in a neighborhood on the north side of Colorado Springs.

Stories on the pooping have appeared in The Washington Post and on websites including Buzzfeed and TMZ.

Charmin, known for its commercials featuring talking cartoon bears that swear by the product's wiping ability, jumped into the smelly fray on Thursday via the social media site Twitter.

"If the #MadPooper turns herself in, we'll give her a year's supply of TP to help with her 'runs'," the toilet paper firm tweeted.

The pooping became famous after Cathy Budde reported the defecating jogger frequenting her neighborhood near Briargate and Union boulevards.

She said the jogger, caught on camera, has been confronted over the incidents, but hasn't changed her ways. The Budde family dubbed her the "Mad Pooper."

Colorado Springs police reported no new leads in the case Thursday.

It's unclear how valuable Charmin's reward might be. The average America uses 60 sheets of toilet paper daily, ripping through a roll of Charmin in about three days. Rolls of Charmin can be purchased online for about $1.50 per roll.

That could net the suspect about $150 worth of the hygiene supplies.
