Jacob Tailor was a documentary filmmaker for the Canadian Broadcast Company who visited the small Siberian town of Zabrovst to record a recently discovered saber-toothed tiger carcass. The body of a man in his late twenties, whose clothing matched that of a sixteenth-century cossack, had also been found. This cossack would turn out to be a zombie that awoke from the deep freeze while Tailor was away in Toronto. It soon targeted local villagers. To see if they were anymore undiscovered remains Tailor sent a team of about 12 to work at a dig site. Weeks passed by and no communication with the team had been established. Tailor, two cameramen, and an assistant were flown by helicopter to the dig site. Tailor searched and found nothing, then returned to the helicopter, when suddenly a scream was heard. Tailor and his crew found their pilots being devoured. Tailor and his team were targeted by roughly thirty zombies, including the members of his lost dig team. They proceeded to retreat and destroyed one of the two staircases to a nearby house. They then made a ramp of doors on the other one to keep the zombies at bay. Two days later they figured out that the zombies die with blows to the head, and they eventually managed to fend off the zombies with melee weapons. After seven hours of frantically defending themselves against a totally unknown adversary, Tailor's crew managed to re-kill the zombies. Tailor's crew did document the struggle, but the experts of his time denounced the footage as fake, ruining his career. In total, 55 hours of footage were recorded; none of which has been found by the public.
