The life cycle of the parasite needs a host to consume the infected meat, and then when the meat passes through it can be spread into the water and the ducks take it in unwittingly. Better off burning the carcass or disposing of it in a way where animals are unlikely to get at it, even if it isn't a big problem no sense in spreading it to your local area if it isn't there already. I have yet to see it myself, but if I shot a duck with it somewhere then brought it home to clean I wouldn't be tossing it in the woods to risk my local waters getting the parasite.
