HIGGINSVILLE, Mo. — Last week a man brought a stuffed moose to Kauffman Stadium in honor of Mike Moustakas, since then, FOX 4 went inside of his workshop to learn the story of the man behind the moose.

John Dittmer says a friend handed the moose down to him. Dittmer says the moose is a good luck charm for the team.

Dittmer, who has been a taxidermist for years, says he wouldn’t dream of doing anything else.

“You know what, I could really do this for a living, and now I’m just living the American dream, stuffing dead animals every day,” Dittmer said.

Dittmer says if the Royals can make a comeback from any game, he can make almost any animal come back from the dead, too.
