Hi Alison,

it's a little hard to make out much detail in the photo, so it's very hard to make a confident identification. The overall shape is similar to something like the canine of a young dog, but it's hard to tell what the cross-sectional shape is and I can't really tell if the damage at the tip is wear or breakage. If the tooth is more triangular in cross section and it's wear at the tip, then it's probably from a pig.
