LEE'S SUMMIT, MO. — Many people would not stop to rescue an injured animal on the side of the highway. Aaron Schneider is not one of those people. When Schneider saw a car hit a beagle on Interstate 470 without stopping, he knew he had to do something. He crossed three lanes of traffic on the busy interstate to reach the dog and shielded him from oncoming traffic. Because of the dog's pain and defensiveness, Schneider could not pick him up, so he waited three hours for help to arrive. The dog had five broken ribs and a broken windpipe and also had internal bleeding. Upon his arrival at the animal hospital, he underwent an emergency blood transfusion.
