SEATTLE (AP) - A mountain of dog food has proven a bit of a
headache for the Port of Seattle.
Port officials bought 12.7 tons 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, with
snowstorms keeping it there 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.
