    Moose, sheep, caribou, goat. Hard to say with no scale.

    A couple different angles and something for scale would be nice. I'm gonna wag sheep, left side.

    Even location where it was found would help a little

    Without knowing size it's really hard to say, but based on the dentition alone, I would say it is definitely some kind of ungulate herbivore. Particularly in the bovidae or cervidae family. Since you say it came from Tonsina (lake???), then I would lean more towards moose or sheep. I don't believe there are goats or caribou there but I could be wrong.

    Those are sheep teeth

    No question, sheep. My take is it isn't a lamb either.
