FILE-In this June 5, 2008 file picture, Jose Tomas is carried on the shoulders of an assistant, after successfully performing on a bullfight at 'Las Ventas' bullring in Madrid. Brave and fearless Jose Tomas returns to the bull ring Saturday, the topflight event of the 2011 bullfighting season, in Spain's eastern city of Valencia after a year recovering from a goring in Mexico that almost cost him his life. Tomas is seen as the savior of a spectacle that is going through rough times with falling gate income, a prohibition in the large and powerful region of Catalonia and a ban on live transmission of fights on national public television.
