While out hunting yesterday I found this head in the snow. Anyone know what animal this is? The head is smaller than my foot.

Sure looks like a coyote from here... An old one I'd guess by the wear on the canines.

12 ring - sorry, that's the only photo I have.

cwade - I was thinking the teeth do look like coyote teeth but i wasnt sure because its such a small head. That's probably what it is though I guess

I think it is a small domestic dog

I would think that it is most likely a racoon skull. It looks to small to be a dog or coyote and the front teeth are wrong for it to be a coyote.

I believe Coon skulls have pointy thin teeth, those front ones are almost flat!

Here is a raccoon skull. Looks very similar except the cartilage on the back part of the eye is missing from this cleaned skull.

I wouldn't rule out an otter.

Certainly looks like a coon skull to me. Right size and shape.
