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.

In Alterac there are always only TWO SH up, normal or BP. They vanish/burrow between spawn points in Alterac (see wowhead map), but only change form at respawn so kill all non-BP hares and keep going. Dead hares respawn immediately somewhere else in the area and could come back as a BP. Also try to keep spawn areas clear so mobs don’t interrupt. I lost my rare moments before caging it when a yeti interrupted. Saw them everywhere as adds but finally got my rare in Alterac.

Ruins of Alterac is a zone by itself. Battle Rats[3] possibility of Hare as 2ndary, in Strahnbrad (takes up BP spots so battle 2 if they respawn). Go through Crushridge (higher % of spawns) and beyond as shown on Wowhead/Pettracker. Ignore spawn 53,23 -bugged (AoE may kill it). You don't have to kill the non-BP Hares, but you can. After I battled the Rats, the BP Hares were already spawning. The Hares de/spawn after a while, even the BP one. I got my rare this way. More info on Wowhead(Korleth).

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.

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.

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.

Secondary pet possibility in Hillsbrad. Has very few Primary spawn points.

 

But one of them is right near where the Greech spawns during Xmas. Thats where I got mine, lol, while waiting for group to pull.

I concur with Coton, I've seen this as an addon in battle with everything from spiders in the mine to toads by the river near Tarren Mill; in fact, that's where I finally got my rare. :)

Korendirs advice worked like a charm for me. The hare does not seem to spawn immediately after killing/battling the rats, but I always found some sooner or later, sometimes respawning in the very same spot I had fought another in the same cycle.

 

Apparently the rats respawn only once all possible hares have been dealt with, so when their corpses can be seen, a hare could possibly be spawning somewhere. But: Hares do eventually despawn, so don't take to much time.

 

Still need a rare one though.

Chionia is actually spot on. I gave what they said a try and it worked perfectly. As I killed non BP's, others spawned and it could be a BP or non BP.

After hunting for a rare Huge Toad all evening, I noticed that these show up as secondaries uncommonly all over Hillsbrad Foothills. You don't need to stay within Alterac. Just battle everything everywhere and you'll eventually find one as a secondary.

 

I also noticed that this pet doesn't follow you like the other rabbits when summoned. It just wanders around like its wild version and burrows to despawn.

In light of the previous comments, I can add this:

 

I watched these guys for over 3 hours, and can safely say that killing stuff around the area makes NO difference at all. I watched them pop in and out of the snow, usually around the trees and on a number of occasions the battle pet spawned right next to an existing critter and that one disappeared. There's also a couple of spawn points in the west, in an area that looks like a C in the snow.

 

Hope this helps people!

These guys have really odd behavior when you're looking for one of them. I saw multiple 'beast' snowshoe rabbits which would occasionally disappear, and one battle rabbit but it burrowed or fled before I could nab it and didn't reappear in 10 minutes (I assume someone else got it).  Going over to the Dalaran Crater and battling rats is a less exciting but more reliable (and less camped!) way of getting one, ime.  Rabbits popped up as a second roughly a quarter of the time.

Some oddities I noticed while camping for my rare.  I was killing the non-battle Snowshoe Hares and once as I went to wand one, it turned to a battle pet.  I assumed I had mistaken it.  Then it happened 4 more times.  So don’t be too quick to off the little guys.  Also if you do not kill the critter snowshoe rabbits they despawn within 60 seconds (Not sure about the battle ones, I never wait to see!).  I do play on a CRZ server so that may be messing with me.

Just caught mine over in Strahnbrad, second to a rat. I never saw any Hares by themselves to engage.

With the extra large surface area of their legs, snowshoe hares are able to effortlessly hop along the snow while their pursuers get bogged down in the drifts.
