A mountain of dog food has proven a bit of a headache for the Port of Seattle. [SIGN UP: Get bizarre news sent to you]

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.
