SKOWHEGAN, Maine (AP) - A Maine animal shelter has so many carrots it doesn’t know what to do.

The Somerset Humane Society in Skowhegan received the carrots last week from a trucking company that wanted to get rid of them after a supermarket manager turned them away because some were bruised.

The carrots were still edible and the trucking company didn’t want to waste them.

Shelter Director Hattie Spaulding estimates they got three to four tons of carrots.

She tells the Morning Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1m4U6ui ) she’s donated them to area food pantries and homeless shelters, the county jail, and offered them for 50 cents a bag to the public.

Most of the dogs and cats at the shelter aren’t particularly interested in carrots, but Spaulding says a local horse owner has offered to take some.
