Just caught mine over in Strahnbrad, second to a rat. I never saw any Hares by themselves to engage.
Just in case this hasn't been commented before, they burrow after about 30 seconds or so, didnt actually time it, placeholders need to be killed for pets to spawn, they burrow as well.
Yea I have also seen them as seconds, on other pets close to the area, but assume the actuals have more chance as a rare, I've been running around 52,23 back and forth killing the place holders, and ogres for the black tabby drop while looking for a rare one of these.
Found mine as a second pet to a rabbit at 48.1, 43.3. It was the first and only one I have seen and it was rare quality. It was last pet I needed for Eastern Kingdom Safari.
After one trip around all of Hillsbrad while battling every pet, I saw 8 Snowshoe Hares, all secondary pets.
3x with Lofty Libram
2x with Rabbit
1x with Toad
2x with Spider
Stopped when I found a rare with a Spider on the west side of the zone.

Got a poor quality snowshoe hare in battle with a rat. Righy by Stranbrad, almost right next to the flight path.
Finally, it has taken hours of farming this lil bunny - and he was a secondary to a rat. I was determined to find one and I got a Lofty Libram (Rare) to boot while farming!!
Location: Hillsbrad Foothills 33,34
Got my rare finally as a secondary battle with an Infected Bear Cub near 34.4, 68.3 in Hillsbrad Foothills.
Just a quick note for anyone looking for this pet. I just experienced a bug where I found a rare, realized I didn't have my Terrible Turnip equiped, dropped the battle to bring out the Turnip, but the wild pet never showed back up. Just a warning to make sure you have your capture pets out if you find one of these in the snow!
Found it rare on Tichondrius US @ 6:20 p.m. server time. I was farming for the Lofty Librams, and ended up getting a rare Libram as well, right to the eastern side of Dalaran Crater. I was just about to leave, and I thought, well, I'll battle this Red-Tailed chipmunk, and there he was. Needless to say super stoked, as I farmed for a rare spirit crab til I was bored today :P
After no luck finding one in the mountains, looked at the rats and librams. Fouond mine as a secondary to a rat.
After reading the comments here, I decided to circle outside the mountains and battle the critters. 5 battles and got a Snowshoe Hare as a secondary to a rabbit.
I finally got mine as a secondary pet in the Uplands north of the Ruins. Rabbit was the main. I did try killing the Snowshoe Hare itself to try and get the critter to spawn but no luck on that end, but I didn't really try that long. I don't like to kill critters so I gave up kind of quickly.
So, after getting absolutely bored after 3 days of farming secondary pets in conjunction with my Lofty Libram search, I seem to have found the key to pet farming...
Find one of the spawn points of the Snowshoe Hare and kill it. The critters are instant spawning, and will just spawn after like 20 seconds, if it stops spawning, check the other spawn points. At some point, a battle pet Snowshoe Hare will spawn in the critter spot, viola. I got my rare in 10 minutes after 3 battles.
Kept circling the snowy area looking for the Snowshoe Hare, was unable to find it there. Circled approx. 5-6 times. Finally decided I'd go to the Dalaran Crater to try and find a rare Lofty Libram, as mine was poor. First battle with a Lofty Libram had a rare secondary Snowshoe Hare! Seems like your chances are better trying other pets to get them as a secondary spawn.
just circle a route along the outer rim of the snow covered area on your flying mount. about every 3mins or 2-3 circles a hare will appear. they will also dissapear again quickly, however, so you need to be fast! don't try killing any mobs or non-BP in the area, it is way quicker to just wait it out. I had 4 appear within 15 mins and caught an uncommon one on my 2nd attempt.
I finally got it just a few mins ago. It was only poor quality but it's better than nothing. It came in as a add from a Rat. I found it at 58,72 I hope this helps people get theirs! :)
Just got one, common quality, second to a Rat in Strahnbrad. Quite hard to find this pet... jeez! Good luck.
Thank you, Korendir, for your awesome explanation! Confirmed!
Unfortunately I am now responsible for killing hundreds and hundreds of rats and non-BP snowshoe hares trying to get my rare.
I finally decided to ONLY kill the BP versions of the rats around Strahnbad and SH's. I DID NOT kill the non-BP versions. This seemed to help a lot because the non-BP's acted like place holders and the BP versions spawned more frequently. Finally, after wanting so bad to give up, the Rare came! NERDRAGE!!!
Just got mine at Dalaran Crater as an addon with a rabbid. Was checking all battlepets I could find.
This was the only and luckily rare Snowshoe Hare I found.
Got mine at Hilsbrad, lvl 7 common came to battle as a secondary to a poor Huge Toad. Really high up the river that crosses the map next to Tarren Mill. I was almost at the border to Western Plaguelands. I kept circling the area in the Locations section before this, but with very little luck. Someone must have been there right before me or something. I was only able to find one and unlucky enough that my pet decided to kill it...
