Guys DO NOT eat MEAT with parasites in it. We just covered this in parasitology class. Parasites that nest in muscle tissues have the potential to infect humans.
Unless the meat is cooked thouroughly and killed they have the ability to induce a condition called larval migrans..resulting in us becoming unwilling hosts.

To date we have seen no warnings about this, and I doubt there ever will be.

There's no shortage of crippled ducks lost for a predator/scavenger's gain.
However rare they may be (and they are not rare), you passed the infestation on to the predators that ate the duck. If you had cooked and eaten it, you would have suffered no ill effects, and you wouldn't have passed along the parasitic infection.
I say it's unlikely that I'll ever see another fat mallard drake with that parasite.
