The rescue by helicopter of more than 500 wild goats on San Clemente Island, 60 miles west of San Diego, is expected to resume July 5, according to a spokeswoman for an animal rights organization. The operation will pick up where it left off last February, when 870 of the animals were captured on the Navy-owned island and taken to the mainland, where all but about 100 have been adopted by private citizens, said Paula Van Orden of the Fund for Animals.
