On the morning of Friday, May 28, 2021, a male, age 39, sustained injuries from a bear while hiking on the Beaver Ponds Trail at Mammoth Hot Springs.
The incident occurred approximately 1.5 miles from the trailhead that originates from the Old Gardiner Road.
The male was hiking alone when he encountered what he believed to be two grizzly bears. One bear made contact with the hiker and he sustained significant injuries to his lower extremities but was able to hike out on his own. 
He was transported to Livingston Hospital by park ambulance.
The Beaver Ponds Trail is closed until further notice. Bear management staff are sweeping the trail to ensure no other hikers are on the trail.
There are no further details to share at this time.

Bear tranquilized, GSMNP visitors fined after feeding bear
According to investigators, witnesses documented the incident on video. The individuals responsible later confessed to their involvement.

>>>KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Great Smoky Mountain National Park rangers issued a citation to visitors accused of feeding a bear peanut butter in Cades Cove.

According to investigators, witnesses documented the incident on video. The individuals responsible later confessed to their involvement.

"Managing wild bears in a park that receives more than 12 million visitors is an extreme challenge and we must have the public's help," Park Wildlife Biologist Bill Stiver said. "It is critical that bears never be fed or approached - for their protection and for human safety."

Officials said the bear had been feeding on walnuts for several weeks along Cades Cove Loop Road. Wildlife biologists said they suspected the bear had been fed after it started to exhibit, "food-conditioned behavior."

If your dumb enough to hike in a wilderness area and leave food in a place easily accessible to animals, then you deserve to have it taken.
