This mount was always bind on pickup, spectral tiger was not, after wotlk there was some changes to mounts where you only had to get a mount once and then all characters on same account which meet requirement to use mount also get it,

Yes the vendor was in Booty Bay, however you could'nt just buy mounts from him first you needed to redeem a code from trading card game, in which to get the codes you had to buy packs of random cards and hope to get lucky, you could also buy a code for a specific item from other players, anyway both ways meant having to spend real money to get mount xd.

because big battle bear is binded to account not when you pick him up,means you can send him to your alt on same account but other mount you cant.

In the upcoming content patch 3.2, Call of the Crusade, we are changing the Upper Deck Trading Card Game mounts to be Bind-on-Use instead of Bind-on-Pickup. This will allow players to sell newly redeemed TCG mounts in-game through the trade window, Auction House or via CoD. The primary goal behind this change is to help reduce the number of players who are getting scammed by trading for an invalid mount code. As part of this update, the NPC vendor functionality currently in place for these mounts will be removed, and instead the mount (both epic and non-epic when applicable), will now be immediately placed in your inventory upon the verified redemption of the code. If you have already redeemed one of these codes and have not purchased both the epic and non-epic versions from the vendor window, it's important that you do so before the patch is released.

This update will affect the Spectral Tiger, Swift Spectral Tiger, X-51 Nether-Rocket, X-51 Nether-Rocket X-TREME, Big Battle Bear, and Magic Rooster Egg. Items that were obtained before the patch will not be affected by this change and will continue to be soulbound to the character that purchased them.
tl;dr If Spectral Tiger is Bind on Use, then the Big Battle Bear should be too.

Ok, I'll try again:

Blizzard has announced that the "removal" of the BoP flag on most TCG mounts is intended and expected to go live ( Blue Post ):

They are not so much as removing the BoP flag as they are creating a new item without it.
The old item (which you will still have if you obtained it before Patch 3.2) is located here:
Reins of the Swift Spectral Tiger
Mount before this patch - Note it's BoP
Mount after the patch spoken about before - Note it has no conditions

well there has been talk about making spectral tiger, the rhino and blazing hypogrypth bind on account same as rooster egg was changed as these mounts are meant to be a incentive to make people vote, if a player can just buy for ingame gold it kind of defeats the idea of rewards for peoplle who support server.

All the items in shop are intended to be a incentive for players to vote.

I think the reason is that people are not just going to sell it on AH for 50k gold.
