...Is there really no way to get these gorgeous bunnies as a pet?

I totally agree OP.

I think it is completely unfair to have a skin in game that no one who has, actually earned it, they lucked out on a bug fix and now blizzard aren't letting anyone else have it?

BFA wild pets are a letdown, this would have been an EASY way to get the golden bunny (adding him as a wild pet and giving it a new name so that those who lucked out still have the exclusive and original golden elfin rabbit and golden mountain cottontails whilst giving everyone else the chance to get a version of the skin on a newly added wild bunny).

And to be absolutely certain they are not a new skin for the mountain cottontails, I found a wild pet battle where a cottontail was a secondary pet (and so the skin can be reset) and engaged and forfeited battle at least 100 times. In that time all the skins for mountain cottontails came up but not the golden one, so am able to pretty much confirm it does not spawn on wild ones.

I got so excited when I first saw these that I actually dismounted and tried to click on one to battle before even realising that it wasn't a battle pet! :roll: :lol:

Fingers crossed for a tameable model in the future!

Thats really weird, cus i have a golden bunny in my pet list.

When he fights he shows as the normal white colour, but when hes following me and in my pet list hes golden.

I cant remember what bunny it was, but once i get home ill have a look and update you.

We have to settle with Golden Beetle :? Nice touch to find them in "temple of gold", although the feels quickly fade when you see them as secondary pets :roll:

A few old rabbit skins changed to gold (I think it was the silver skin, like you find on some Redridge rabbits) in a previous patch. No one knows why. Only people who had that rare silver skin ended up with a gold bunny (I wasn't one of them). What we want now is a gold rabbit that can be captured. :)
