Jawbone - marine or not?

Can anyone identify this jawbone? It was in the ocean, but I doubt very much it's marine life. Could this be a sheep jawbone someone chucked into the sea? I suppose it could be a seal I guess.

Molars prove it to be sheep or a similar hoofed mammal (such as calf , goat or deer).
