From the bruising on the back it looks like this sheep was crushed from the side; either prior to the auction, during, or possibly during transport. You can see the bruising in two C shapes on the back, and a fairly extensive bruise to the left in this picture. an examination of the internal organs showed some blood, and that's pretty much all I needed to know. At some point this little guy got squished, and it did him in after a couple of days.
