The funniest wildlife photos of 2017 are just as wild and hilarious as you'd expect

A laughing mouse and a baby polar bear hitching a ride on its mom's backside are just two of the hilarious pictures featured in the annual Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards. 
The competition features images that are "light-hearted, upbeat, possibly unpretentious and mainly about wildlife doing funny things," according to the award's website. The winners were announced Thursday. 
The overall winner of the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards was a photo of three owls. In a series of four photos, one of the owls struggles to hang on, as its friends look the other way. 
Here's a look at some of the winners and finalists of the annual competition:
