GRANTSVILLE, Utah (AP) — Authorities say a Utah man was airlifted to the hospital over the weekend after being gored by a buffalo he owns, the third animal goring in the state in less than a month.

Tooele County Sheriff's Sgt. Ron Johnson tells The Salt Lake Tribune (http://bit.ly/1aXY6r5) the 65-year-old man was injured in his lower abdomen, buttocks and forehead.

Johnson says the man was taken to University Hospital in Salt Lake City on Saturday. An update on his condition wasn't immediately available.

The goring comes less than a week after a wild bull elk gored a shepherd in the mountains in eastern Utah. The elk punctured one of the man's lungs and knocked him unconscious. He was later flown to a Colorado hospital.

Last month, a zookeeper an amusement park north of Salt Lake City was gored by a wildebeest. She was treated at a trauma center and released.
