*CG locator Richmond


Most of the new laws are designed
to improve Virginia's mental health
system.


They include new criteria for
when a person can be committed....


A standard that focuses more on
public safety and less on personal
rights.


The new laws also clarify when
information can be shared.


If a college counselor determines
a student may, in the near future, harm
himself or someone else, the school may
notify the student's parents.


Also, starting this summer, once
a student has been accepted for
admission, colleges and universities
can request mental health records from
the student's last school.

Just last month, more than
40-rabbits were seized from a farm
after charges of neglect were leveled
against the owner.


Initially they were taken to the
SPCA - but then the animal rescue
group, Angels of Assisi brought them to
Harmony Animal Sanctuary.


The bunnies have multiplied and
there are now 65 of them.

The animals are being prepared to
be spayed and neutered.


After then they'll be put up for
