Houston's Woodland Heights neighborhood, near The Heights, has a serial pooper on the loose. Yes, it is what you think.
Thankfully KPRC reporter Jennifer Bauer was there to get the poop scoop. Naturally, other TV stations and websites were quick to squeeze out stories of their own based on Bauer's reporting.
Then CNN's Anderson Cooper took a plunge with the story and really cleansed the whole thing to make the news cycle regular again (watch him embedded above).
