Personally I don't have a problem with it, but I also would understand if an alien species a million years ahead of us thought we were as far below them as we think ants are below us, so they might think nothing of exterminating thousands of humans in their own experiments. (I think Neil Tyson and/or Michio Kaku and others have also suggested this possibility).

I would have to say it is. With an estimated 10,000,000,000,000,000 ants in the world the thousands in one colony being sacrificed seems to be worth it to further our knowledge of them. The fascination is just a perk.
