SEATTLE — A mountain of dog food has proven a bit of a headache for the Port of Seattle.
Port officials bought about 12 tonnes of kibble in June to test new baggage conveyor systems at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
In October, the 1,600 bags were stored in a warehouse.
But due to snowstorms over the winter, the bags were left in the warehouse longer than anticipated.
On Tuesday, port officials voted to donate the dog food to two animal shelters, but it was too much for the outlets in Seattle and King County to store.
So the shelters are passing on most of it to food banks for the dogs of people in need.
