HAMPTON, Ill. -- The sign says it all: "Stop pooping on the bike path."

The notices went up in the the town of Hampton, Ill., FOX6 reported.

Workers have been finding poop on the town's bike paths for more than two years, Hampton Public Works Supervisor Scott McKay said. And they believe it's human.

“It’s just pretty nasty to talk about. Animals don’t carry toilet paper and then stuff it on the top,” McKay told the station.

McKay says the party responsible leaves toilet paper on top of the poop every single time. Officials are still trying to figure out why someone would do this in the first place, as there are public restrooms nearby.
