So, the villagers had encountered a herd of small dragons, which seemed to be growing. Possibly, the dragons couldn't fly. The dragons were good at hiding because no-one saw them. What else was known about them? As the dragons only stole animals, they certainly liked easy food. The villagers planned late into the night because they wanted to figure out a way to get the dragons. When they woke up in the morning, they heard from Yellowbeard that another dragon attack had taken place at night: one more hole in the wooden palisade and a lot of lost animals.
Not all software defects are big and severe. Even small defects can be very severe, and you need to fix them immediately. A minor defect can just be one typo, but it can still cause a lot of problems. In the story, small dragons manage to take so many animals that the situation begins to get out of control. On the other hand, very big, visible defects do not necessarily lead to defect fixes if they are not severe, so they do not cause much harm. A visible but not severe defect may be, for example, a website home page full of annoying typos. Nobody dies or loses money because of them.
