If you are talking about humans, that sure would help out nature!
Nature is getting squeezed out so people can go to Chuck E. Cheese.

Whose to say it isn't just the natural process at work? We had a situation here at a large park where the deer population shot up so high, they were starving and diseased. They were running out into traffic on a nearby road where the speed limit is 55 and causing all kinds of accidents. Their procreation was out of control. The city decided to close the park for a weekend to allow hunters to go in and hunt the deer, thereby thinning the population. Healthy deer that would be killed would be processed and the food divided between the the hunter and local homeless shelters. After this plan was devised, the local tree-huggers and animal-rights activists got their asses all up in the air and got an injunction to prevent that approach. So then the city had to dish out millions of dollars to have these deer captured, treated, and relocated to some big-mother habitat someplace down south.
Epilog: A local news show did a follow-up like 3 or 4 years afterwards, and found that the deer had propogated to the point that their conditions were worse than when they were in the park.
There *is* a natural process, just because you may not view it as proper from the outside doesn't mean it's still not the way things are supposed to be. Let's face it, deer aren't exactly an endangered species here in the midwest.
