Humans can unknowingly carry the cysts for 20 years until it becomes critical. When cysts rupture, the person enters anaphylactic shock and dies within 10 minutes, Acker said.

Yikes.

Echinococcus granulosus (generally the more hazardous domestic biotype, sheepdog/sheep type, also found in coyotes) and E. multilocularis have both been found in a wide range of intermediate and definitive hosts for a long time in the lower 48.  The sylvatic or northern form of E. granulosus (the wolf/ungulate type) is a particularly weak pathogenic form (see the review by Jenkins et al. 2005). 

I'd recommend Foreyt et al. 2009 for a good assessment of the situation, including risk to humans.

My 2017 Blue Mountains permit buck had Echinococcus granulosus cysts on its lungs. DFW said it's safe to eat but I have 90lbs of processed deer meat in the freezer I probably won't touch.

Wow, Trapp.  Not even braising dishes or other 'well done' treatments?  When friends have given me wild pig meat, I definitely cook the heck out of it, since those critters can carry trichinosis, which is not a pleasant little disease.

If it was just me I might give it a try, but I don't really want my wife and two littles turning into science projects or a statistic. I'll try to post up some pics of the cysts when I get off work.
