Animal die offs are common. They have been happening for decades. The most commonly reported die offs are whales. The beachings make the news. Seems
people think that dead whales are more interesting than dead corals, dead squid, dead fish, dead birds, or dead insects.
Die offs are occasionally recorded in the fossil record. Here is one place that might be one in the fossil record. I say might because all that seems
to be known is that 600 bison died in one place and apparently at the same time. If you are ever in the area I recommend a visit.

Are these events new? No. Probably been happening for as long as life has been on Earth.
