Was that a goat?

When I lived in Italy as a child, I would go food shopping with my mother. The butcher shops had real meat hanging from the ceiling- pigs, chickens, lamb and even chicken feet was the decor. No sanitized packages of who knows what in the shop.
Today I ran into the local Lebanese butcher for some lamb and there hanging from the ceiling was a skinned goat!
Not an everyday sight in the suburbs!
