SEATTLE -- Seattle Police posted images online of objects thrown at them during a recent Occupy protest at the Port of Seattle.

The objects included red paint, bricks and rebar. The red paint hit an SPD horse, officers said.

The images are posted on the SPD Blotter website.

Eleven protesters were arrested Monday during the protest, which operated as part of a nationwide effort to shutdown sea ports.

Protesters blocked traffic going into the port with makeshift fences, blockades, and by linking arms.
