Not a legend. When I lived in southeast Buncombe County (Broad River Township) in the 1980s and 90s I frequently heard painters at night.

One wildlife biologist tried to convince me that it was a bobcat, but this thing was WAY bigger than any bobcat I've ever seen and looked like nothing other than the painters at the WNC Nature Center. Wow.
Well, I for one am convinced that you saw a painter, the characterisitcs of which are discussed on some other forums
in this website. The sightings in Cashiers and Linville a few years ago were also in the early morning on a foggy road.
