Dire Wolf tooth?

I found this tooth at Peace River today and I think it's a canine tooth from a Dire Wolf, but I wanted a second opinion. Thanks!

Can't say I've ever seen a Dire Wolf canine but I have seen things similar to this identified as coming from bears. Hoping @Harry Pristis might have something to say about this.

 

 

Cheers.

Thanks for the reply Digit! I was thinking maybe bear too but the root shape looks a little more elongated from the examples I could find. I'm not really sure what it is now.

What is the length of your canine?

Mine is clearly bear, due to the height of the root... You might provide a photo from the side... c2017Nov23rdUrsusCanine.thumb.jpg.55c09ce6d60a7c05274e3b3196d172aa.jpg
