Cauga una?

Can you recognize this skull? This is from my photoarchive of Alaskan Mammal skull, so you can assume it's in our state.
Post guesses below!

Looks like maybe wolverine...but where are the top canines?

If I remember, one was yanked for cross-section. The other got knocked out after years of handling. The mandible is in danger of coming apart, so it has the rubberband.

Look at the zygomatic process of temporal bone - the point that comes laterally off behind the muzzle. Also, there isn't much for scale, except for maybe the string - It's a smaller animal.

Tiny with really big teeth and a short nose. No idea, it's not weasely or foxy not voley or mousy...

then again, I can't see how long the back of the head it, it might be an ermine.
