Fire officials say an Arizona man who was trying to ride his pet buffalo was mauled by the animal after it bucked him off.

It happened this week at the man's home in a rural area north of Phoenix.

A fire official says the 75-year-old man was flown to a Scottsdale hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.

The man owns two of the animals.
