Halloween Special: Name That Skull

What kind of skull is it?
I don't mean to seem morbid, but I uh, have this skull. It used to be joined at the neck to some kind of animal, but I don't know what kind. I figured, tonight being Halloween, now's the time to ask.

I found this skull when I went out to pick banjo in the ruins of an old cabin (really) and accidentally sat on it. It is a sturdy skull and didn't break, even though it was lying in the ground sideways, which is why it has that cool half-dirty, half-clean yin and yang thing. I put it in my pocket and took it home, but no one I've shown it to yet can tell me definitively what kind of skull it is.

That's what I'd like to know.
Hunters, veterinarians, cryptozoologists, can you tell? I tried to photograph it from several angles, but I have lots more photos I can send if you need. I'm sorry I couldn't find the jaw, but you can see that it used to have some fairly wicked teeth. I'm guessing maybe fisher or fox, but something tells me jackalope.  I thought maybe chupacabras (a little one) but they don't usually come this far north.

It's kind of creepy to have it on my desk not knowing what it is. Rebecca wants nothing to do with it, and I would like to resolve the issue as soon as possible. Any help you can provide in this matter is much appreciated.

Happy Halloween,
