The corpse must be in a Refuse Stockpile for the butcher to get it.
If the animals were killed in Battle, someone needs to haul they corpses to a refuse stockpile first.
The corpses can not be "Forbidden". Depending on your settings, killed creatures might be auto-forbidden, so you need to select and un-forbid them. (Set Orders and Options -> Forbid)
Also dwarves need to be allowed to Gather Corpses and Gather Refuse Otside (if it's outside).

They will collect the corpses and haul them to a refuse stockpile, if they are allowed to.
Once a eligible corpse is in the stockpile, a "Butcher Dead Animal" job will be auto-queued at the butchers shop, and a Dwarf with Butchery labour enabled (if you have one) will see to it.

You also can't butcher corpes of domestic animals that died of Old Age, it appears
