File - In this Aug. 15, 2010 file photo, Spanish bullfighter Victor Puerto performs during a bullfight at the Las Ventas Bullring in Madrid. Spain's state TV will start airing live bullfights again on Sept. 5, 2012 after the new conservative government lifted a six-year ban on the tradition that has been hard hit by declining popularity and the economic crisis. It's a big victory for pro-bullfighting forces who saw fights prohibited this year in the northeastern region of Catalonia. And it's a defeat for animal rights activists who denounce bullfighting as barbaric. The live transmissions were halted in 2006 by Spain's previous Socialist administration, which said they were costly and coincided with youth TV viewing hours. (AP Photo/Daniel Ochoa de Olza, File)
