With the 2020 US presidential election less than seven weeks away, it appears that some people are resorting to disturbing tactics within the politically divided nation.
In fact, according to the Daily Mail, an unidentified woman has spent the course of two days putting dog poop in the mailboxes of Donald Trump supporters in Hampden, Maine.
The publication states that police are now looking for the suspect, who is believed to have targeted homes with Trump signs in their front yards.
The shocking acts were reportedly carried out on Sunday and Monday, with Alyshia Canwell, a patrol officer with Hampden Public Safety, telling ABC Channel 9 News:
“She has been picking up dog feces and putting it in mailboxes, specifically of people who have Trump signs outside and she has been also defacing Trump signs, writing comments on the signs.”
Hampden Police have since released a photo of the woman in question, which has since been circulated online.
The woman in the photo appears to be middle-aged with short brown hair. She can be seen wearing a purple top, a pair of shorts, a black mask, and Crocs.
Another speculated: “I mean the fact is if she is capable of doing it to one group of people who’s to say she won’t to anyone else… I mean I hope she gets caught because this is really nasty no matter who you do it too #trumpdumper.”
A third commenter referred to the woman’s behavior as “ignorant”, asking “what if the mailman/mailwoman finds it first? Or someone’s child?? They’ll catch her and it’s going to be hilarious, hopefully, they’ll throw the book at her as it’s a federal offense.”
However, not everyone was so critical about the anonymous poop dumper’s actions, with one Facebook user remarking:
“Apparently none of you work with animals. it’s dog poop people. I’m not arguing right vs wrong, but it’s dog poop… everyone will be okay. Truly ironic how many of you are going OFF about dog poop, but stay pretty silent about all the extremely-more-terrible things that Trump does on the daily.
It should really go without saying; but please don’t put dog poop in anybody’s mailbox. It’s gross.
