As a starting point, Draft animals can pull logs weighing about half their body weight.

A 1600 lb horse can pull a 750 lb log.
A 5 ton elephant can pull a 3 ton log.

Your 100,000 ton animal should be able to drag a 50,000 ton “log”.

(If you are interested, logging animals are changed out every 1/4 mile.)
