War at the Jersey shore over who rules the beaches (AP)

In this June 20, 2011 photo released by New Zealand's Department of Conservation, ranger Clint Purches watches an Emperor penguin as he walks along Peka Peka Beach in New Zealand, after it got lost while hunting for food. The young Antarctic Emperor penguin has taken a rare wrong turn and ended up stranded on a New Zealand beach.
