Ecclesiastes III., 19, tells us that the death of man and beasts is equal, and that man hath no pre-eminence over the beast.

The Catholic Answers

Human experience does show us that man can no more escape death than the beasts. But man’s condition is not the same, for his soul lives on, still capable of knowledge and love, happiness or misery. Thus the same Book, in XII., 7, tells us that “the dust shall return to the earth as it was, and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.” The fate of the soul differs from that of the body.
