A senior citizen from New York was airlifted to hospital after being severely mauled by a grizzly bear while backpacking close to Yellowstone National Park.

The unidentified 68-year-old from Buffalo was blindsided by the beast and left unable to use the bear spray he was carrying.

Luckily he was able to trigger his personal locator beacon, mobilizing rescuers to the remote Wyoming wilderness where he was left stranded.

Sheriffs and the Wyoming Game and Fish Department have not revealed the man's identity or his current medical condition.
