The Funniest Wildlife Photos Of 2017 Are Also Pretty Freakin Adorable

The animal kingdom has a whole lot of jesters.

The winners of the annual Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards were announced on Thursday, recognizing photos that are “light-hearted, upbeat, possibly unpretentious and mainly about wildlife doing funny things,” the contest website reads.

You know, like a fox using a hole at a golf course as its private bathroom (see below).

The overall winner of the contest received a one-week, all-expenses-paid safari in Kenya, and category winners got a trophy made by men and women with disabilities at the Wonder Workshop in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Not too shabby for snapping an “otter this world” photo.

(Jewish Group) 'Shoot the Jews': How Sweden's Jews Just Became Key Targets for Violent Muslim Anger


When Molotov cocktails, or similar improvised weapons, were hurled at the synagogue in the Swedish city of Gothenburg Saturday evening, while Jewish youths had a party in the adjacent community center, it was shocking - but not surprising.

The burning of the Israeli flag near the U.S. and Israeli embassies in Stockholm earlier the same day was shocking - but not surprising.

The demonstrations in central Malmö on Thursday and Friday, where chants like "We're going to shoot the Jews" were shouted in Arabic, were shocking but not surprising.

It is mindboggling that, in 2017, a group of 200 people can gather in a public square in Sweden (Sweden!) and shout their intention to kill Jews, apparently without fear of reproach.

It's also reprehensible that the incident would likely even have gone unnoticed were it not for a report by a single local journalist, apparently the only one with enough nous to sense that a protest against a U.S. president’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel could lead to incitement against Jews in Sweden.


I am not surprised by any of this (this is also happening in London, Amsterdam, Berlin, and other European cities), anymore than I am surprised by people making excuses for this bullshit. I am also unsurprised by the fact most major media sources are completely ignoring it.
