Why do some Buddhists and Hindus agree with animal testing?

I have to do this for a Religious Studies essay.

Please just give me some ideas.

I know why they are against it but not why they agree with it sometimes.

Thanks x

    I don't know for sure, but this may help.

    Karma and Reincarnation: (i believe in neither the way they do)

    Karma must be paid to go to a better life. So to kill an animal early stips it having the chance to develop ... but testing makes it suffer (pay more Karma). If the test doesn not kill, I assume they would agree to it.

    Lower life forms reincarnate into higher beings after they pay Karma and die. The testing would help the process.

    No Buddhist can justify support of animal testing with any Buddhist doctrine or teaching. If they do, it's their own opinion.

    The same reason that christians agree with human testing.

    Because hindus belives that some animals are gods and avatars.
