    Dig a deep trench and bury them.

    Clean up everything and start over.

    Sad, truly sad.

    If there is a mass die off, your local ag university or local extensions office might be able to lead you to where you can get a necropsy done on the diseased.

    That said, in the end, regardless of cause, you should burn the bodies, as burring can be dug up and spread via wildlife.
