This young ranger is learning some hard, sad truths. First they learn to love the forest animals and trees and plants, then they learn of their cruel destruction. Then they are trained to protect that which they love from that destruction. I think you can figure out that this young elven ranger has just has his first lesson in the results of cruel destruction.
