Found: Chapter book about a boy and an escaped lion

I have a memory of reading this book in the late 70's as a child. I think even then it was dated.

The story was about a boy who tries to befriend an escaped lion (small chance it was a tiger) who escaped and was hiding in the hollow created by a fallen tree. I think it was injured. The boy would get scraps from the local butcher to feed it. I'm pretty sure it was a British book. I think there was an orchard in the story.

This has been eluding me for years. I've never been successful googling this.

Thanks so much.
