The latest information on the transmission of CWD to humans:
https://www.cdc.gov/prion...ssion.html

"To date, there is no strong evidence for the occurrence of CWD in people, and it is not known if people can get infected with CWD prions. Nevertheless, these experimental studies raise the concern that CWD may pose a risk to people and suggest that it is important to prevent human exposures to CWD."

Not sure I would be too concerned. But some people might take the "better safe than getting Swiss cheese brain" approach.
