LOS ANGELES » The TV series "Duck Dynasty" is coming between Morrissey and Jimmy Kimmel.

The singer and animal rights activist says he canceled his appearance today on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" because "Duck Dynasty" cast members will be on the talk show.

Morrissey says he can't perform on a show with what he called people who "amount to animal serial killers."

A&E's "Duck Dynasty" reality show follows a Louisiana family with a business selling duck calls and decoys.

A&E did not immediately respond to requests for comment from it and the Robertson family.

A person familiar with the Kimmel show's plans confirmed that Morrissey was to appear. The person lacked authority to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The person says Morrissey's performance will be rescheduled.

ABC says the Churchill band will perform today on Kimmel's show but declined comment on the switch.

That's too bad. Actually studies have shown that controlled hunting helps animal species survive and flourish. Also a lot of money spent on licenses and hunting supplies are used for the conservation and management of wildlife. The Federal Sportfish and Wildlife Restoration Acts require an excise tax on hunting and angling supplies with the money gained to be used for ground management efforts. It can be said that the people from "Duck Dynasty" are doing more to help wildlife than Mr. Morrissey himself.
