Citation: On 10/13/2011 at approximately 0825, I observed the following noncompliance. I walked up to the door and looked through the window between the inedable room and the pen area and observed a pick-up backed up to the unloading dock with the tailgate down, there was approximately a one foot drop to the loading dock floor. An excited lamb jumped off to the loading dock floor. The lamb was not injured. I informed Mr. [redacted] of the noncompliance. Mr. [redacted] informed me he would talk to the customer and explain that this was an unacceptable way to unload.
