Heal the Bay's 23rd yearly cleanup of the coastal watershed on Saturday yielded nearly 20 tons of junk that shouldn't be in the ocean. Oddities this year included the body of a rooster with its head cut off, found at Santa Monica Beach; a rifle barrel found by divers off
Redondo pier, turned over to police; and a 25-gallon container filled with oil sludge, dumped near a creek in Agoura Hills. The effort's Flickr stream also some kids holding up a hair extension they found on the beach.
Heal the Bay says its volunteers also found an actor's tattered headshot on the sea bottom near Santa Monica Pier.
More than 9,000 people took part at 58 sites around Los Angeles County where trash and debris could make its way to the ocean, Heal the Bay said.
