This is not necessarily the case. God created man to be immortal by infusing him with His grace, animals however were never immortal. When man sinned, he lost God's grace thus excluding him from His original immortality.

This is a common misunderstanding based on largely protestant assumptions that man's nature was changed after the Fall.
1 corinthians 15.26 calls death the enemy. God made all things originally and called it "good" could he say this of his enemy? could god call a creation with animal death good in the first place? would this not go against his own word in proverbs 12.10. Did not death enter by mans sin as Romans 5 12-14 says. Genesis 1 29-30 says animals were to be vegetarian as well as man. In gods good creation he wanted animals to multiply, not to die gen 1 24-25.

 30 Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food”; and it was so31 Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
“Its been said that when human beings stop believing in god they believe in nothing. The truth is much worse, they believe in anything.”
