This is why AppealToNature is a {{Logical Fallac|ies}}y. Related to the NaiveAnimalLover, who doesn't realize how brutal wildlife can be. Compare with DeathWorld. Contrast with GhibliHills. Inversely related to AllNaturalSnakeOil.

* Creator/WernerHerzog appears to be of this opinion, as can be seen in several of his films. His ending narration to ''Film/GrizzlyMan'' perhaps puts it best.
* The book and film ''Film/IntoTheWild'', which chronicles the experiences of Christopher [=McCandless=], a young and [[WideEyedIdealist idealistic]] college graduate who abandons everything for attempting to live off the Alaskan wilderness. Christopher slowly realizes this trope's truth as his supplies dwindle and it becomes evident that he was very poorly prepared for his adventure, ending up starving to death.
* ''Film/{{Blackfish}}'' seems to make a point to contrast the sugary family-friendly [=SeaWorld=] TV commercials with orcas performing tricks and being petted by trainers to the terrifying footage of orcas attacking the trainers and sometimes each other. Although the film also presents the whale's natural environment as being a relatively harmonious one.

* ''Film/GrizzlyMan'' and ''Film/IntoTheWild'' (see the Film folder above for more details) are respectively a documentary and drama regarding the true stories of the lives and deaths of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timothy_Treadwell Timothy Treadwell]] and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christopher_McCandless Christopher McCandless]], two naive men who both died (albeit from very different causes) in the remote wilderness of Alaska due to their ignorance.

* Like other sandbox games, ''Videogame/{{Starbound}}'' has this as its core gameplay element. The lowest tier planets are known as garden planets and are described as a "lush and pleasant" world. The animals there are hostile.

* This is the reason Green magic in ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' isn't a "good" color. There are many cards that reflect the life-giving and nurturing facet of Mother Nature. There are also many cards that reflect Mother Nature's brutality.

* In the Literature/BookOfJob, God Himself [[JustifiedTrope justifies this trope]] when the Voice from the Whirlwind speaks to Job, as an example of the inherent injustice of the universe. Descriptions of [[CirclingVultures vultures hunting out the corpses of the slain]] to feed their chicks, and [[ArtisticLicenseBiology ostriches]] [[ParentalNeglect abandoning their young in the dirt to be crushed or trampled]] abound.

** In the Literature/BookOfJob, God Himself [[JustifiedTrope justifies this trope]] when the Voice from the Whirlwind speaks to Job, as an example of the inherent injustice of the universe. Descriptions of [[CirclingVultures vultures hunting out the corpses of the slain]] to feed their chicks, and [[ArtisticLicenseBiology ostriches]] [[ParentalNeglect abandoning their young in the dirt to be crushed or trampled]] abound. In the words of biblical critic Robert Alter,
--> One of the remarkable aspects of the Job poet’s vision of nature is that it so completely unsentimental. The creatures of the wild (with the exception of the peculiar ostrich) are endowed with an instinct to nurture their young. For carnivores, however, that nurture involves violence—destroying living creatures in order to sustain life in the offspring. The concluding image, then, of God’s first speech is of the fledgling eagles in the nest, their little beaks open to gulp down the bloody scraps of flesh that their parent has brought them. The moral calculus of nature clearly does not jibe with the simple set of equations and consequences laid out in Proverbs and in Psalms.
