Looks like a mammalian scapula (shoulder blade). I suspect if you classify it as "mammal" you might get a better id.
....mammalian scapula and I can't go beyond that. A move to mammals would help you.
Too small for a marine mammal, --> terrestrial
Too big for a rodent, --> rabbit maybe?

This is not any sort of scapula. A scapula would be flatter and have the surfaces for muscle attachments. It might be a water-worn fragment of a longbone but you will never get past 'mammal', if indeed you could even be sure of that.
I see. Thanks.
If it is not a recognisable bone, could it have be fashioned into some sort of tool, and if so, could it have been fashioned from a longbone as Mydaea suggests?
The sea has done its work on this bone, so who can say if its was fashioned by human hands?
a piece of cow horn?
