Intriguing Question

An assignment D has (had) from school is to write five paragraphs discussing prey/predator relationships and human intervention in that process. One question to be addressed is "Why is it considered more 'natural' for creatures to die from predators instead of starvation?" D didn't particularly want to think about it but his brother and I were intrigued.
Something that struck me about it is concerning humans, like any population, we fight over resources. Without natural predators, we've turned on ourselves.
