Three sheep have fallen off a truck on the west side of Edendale, slowing some traffic.

Police were called to State Highway 1 near Edendale about 10am. 

Constable Bruce Glass, of Gore, said he believed the sheep were alive before they hit the road.

"It seems to be pretty fresh blood, it is all rather untidy," he said.

Mr Glass said the incident was rare, but called on truck drivers to be aware of their loads.
