Once upon a time, there was a shepherd who kept several sheep.

One morning, the shepherd discovered that one of his sheep was missing. It turned out that during the night, a wolf had stolen his sheep through a hole in the sheep pen.

His neighbor suggested: "You should fix the pen and cover the hole right away."

But the shepherd said: "The sheep is already lost, so I don't need to repair it." And so he rejected the neighbor's suggestion.

The next morning, he discovered that another sheep was missing. Time and time again, the wolf stole a sheep through the hole in the fence.

The shepherd regretted not taking the neighbor's advice. So he plugged the hole to secure the sheep pen.

From then on, no more sheep were stolen by the wolf.
