Billboards blast mysterious playground pooper in Ypsilanti

Posted: Updated:
YPSILANTI, Mich. (WJBK) - A Michigan advertising and marketing firm is lending a hand after learning a person has been leaving feces on playground slides in Ypsilanti.

Adams Outdoor Advertising in Ann Arbor has set up a billboard along I-94 near South Huron Street, exit 183, encouraging the public to turn in the mystery pooper.

The eye-catching billboard toggles through these various slogans:

Help us flush the pooper #YPSIPOOPER

Do your civic doody report the pooper. #YPSIPOOPER

Help us catch the poopetrator #YPSIPOOPER

Authorities say feces has been repeatedly left at Prospect Park over the last six months. They have since set up a patrol and security system.

UPDATED 4/18 to add: The Ypsilanti Police Department says it continues to investigate the health and safety issue of the defecator in Prospect Park. The department is investigating a person of interest possibly involved in the incidents.
