Not a legend. When I lived in southeast Buncombe County (Broad River Township) in the 1980s and 90s I frequently heard painters at night. Then one morning just past dawn, when driving on Old Fort Road east of NC 9, I saw a panther leap across the road illuminated by my headlights. Body and tail together stretched from the center line to the side line as it bounded in two strides and disappeared into the forest. Ten years later I can still vividly recall that sight.
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.
