I am by no means an expert, I'm the opposite, lol. But didn't most paganism occur in Europe? So I guess the reason for the goat and not the lion is that lions don't normally live in Europe. And goats were a common enough animal that most people had them or knew people that had them. Like I said, I'm not an expert on paganism, I'm just throwing out my 2 cents.
