Is this tooth a fossil or a modern animal?

I found this tooth in a creek bed where I have found arrow heads and mini balls and am curious to know what it is.

Fossil Collector: Rob Q

Location: Vicksburg, MS

[We get a great many pictures of large mammal teeth sent in to My Fossil Find. Most turn out to be the teeth of modern cattle, but they always generate great interest because of their size so we will post another. This one appears wider than most. What do you think? Ice Age animal or modern mammal? Please leave a response.]

Fossil found in a Alberta field

Fossil discovered in a Drumhellar field.

Fossil Collector: Joe

Location: Drumhellar Alberta, Canada

[Note: Drumhellar gets a lot of attention for dinosaurs, but there is more there to be discovered. This appears to be part of the internal cast of an ammonite shell.]
