Some researchers have already stated that human cases of chronic wasting disease could appear in the following years as the infection continues to spread to more deer. Till now it has been spread to around 24 states, and experts claim that this disease will soon spread to humans also.
Some experts seem to think so, claiming that the so-called Chronic Wasting Disease now affecting deer, elk and moose in 24 states and two Canadian provinces could very well spread to humans in the years ahead. The prion disease is quite prevalent in areas of North America, including Canada and the United States.
The CDC described the disease as "a rapidly progressive, invariably fatal neurodegenerative disorder", and it is passed between animals through bodily fluids. However, some experts have raised concerns that it could pose a threat to people.
"Since 2000, the area known to be affected by CWD in free-ranging animals has increased to at least 24 states, including states in the Midwest, Southwest and limited areas on the East Coast", the CDC said.

Do not shoot, handle or eat meat from deer and elk that look sick or are acting strangely or are found dead (road-kill).
The disease attacks the brain, spinal chord and other tissues in the creature, before ultimately resulting in death.
The CDC recommends wearing latex or rubber gloves when handing a hunted animal and its meat.
If you have your deer or elk commercially processed, consider asking that your animal be processed individually to avoid mixing meat from multiple animals. Never use household knives or utensils for field dressing.
