A man has been photographed defecating on a private pathway near an apartment block in south-east Brisbane.
Greenslopes residents have snapped the man in the act after a frustrating year of finding the human faeces.
The man known as the ‘poo jogger’ has been running past the block three times a week.
He regularly squats at the privately-owned path before sunset, leaving an unwanted mess for residents to clean up.

The photo was snapped by resident, Steve Smith who estimated had stopped to relieve himself 30 times in the past year.
Fed up about the bizarre morning ritual, locals came together and set up a night vision camera.
‘I started sitting out there in the dark and waiting, and I decided I was going to get a photo of this guy. I patiently waited each morning for a few minutes until eventually I got that photo,’ Mr Smith told the Courier Mail.
The image was then posted to Facebook and is intended to be distributed in a letter drop to find the mysterious poo jogger.
This picture captured a grey-haired man dressed in running gear with his pants pulled down and squatting over the concrete path.
He is holding a small section of toilet paper and is looking towards the camera next to a suburban brick wall.

According to Mr Smith, the man frequently ran the same path but did not stop to defecate each time.
Mr Smith later wrote on Facebook the man was identified as a Greenslopes resident.
He said he wouldn’t reveal his name unless he continues his morning ritual.
‘Not sharing his name at this stage, unless he continues to do it,’ the post read.
Shocked Facebook users commented on the bizarre image of the man.
‘I can see no reasonable excuse for his filthy and disgusting behaviour. The fact that he has done this on numerous occasions makes it even worse!,’ one commenter said.
Another wrote: ‘Hopefully someone (either friend, acquaintance or even his employer) will recognise him’.
