Random Thought about Scientists

During a conversation with a friend last Friday, I had the following realization.

Scientists have done a lot to help animals lately. They've conducted research proving that animals, especially primates, have their own language, culture, ability to use tools, emotions, etc. They've provided a lot of proof for the animal rights cause.

And yet, at the same time, they are the primary proponents of taking the same animals and exploiting them in barbaric, unnecessary experimentation. Scientists are also among the strongest advocates of animals being less than humans.

A true view or simply a justification for their livelihood and research?

Anyway, just an observation of how relying on scientists is a double-edged sword.
