I'm with Stages on this. For a lot of reasons. Blizz didn't want Sandfury Guardian or Grimtotem Spirit Guide tamed in Vanilla WoW, but they didn't take them away, they just made them imposible to feed and therefore completely unusable outside of battlegrounds (they later eased off on the nerf-hammer for both of these). Blizz also didn't want players taming the Black Ravager quest mob or the technicolor warp stalker in Burning Crusade, but Blizz only disabled taming of these and didn't take them away from us. Blizz didn't mean for puddles of green ooze to be tamed in WotLK, but they let us keep them anyhow after making them untamable going forward (and they didn't exactly jump to make it untamable, they waited for multiple patches before acting).Then a worgen was tameable. Oh noes, the horror! Blizzard jumped all over that in a panicked hurry and fixed it on the next business day after it was reported on WoW Insider, then made the unprecidented move of removing the pet altogether. That's more than just an unintended tamable pet, that's more than something that didn't make sense for the lore. That's damage control; it was interfering with Blizzards future plans for worgens so they had to remove this pet in spite of their prior policies on hunter pet bugs.
