WASHINGTON (CBSDC) - It’s not often an entire fanbase gets to avenge a heartbreaking playoff loss for its team, but that’s exactly the opportunity the Saint Louis Zoo has presented Nats fans by announcing a naming contest for this baby elephant.

On Friday, April 26, a 251-pound Asian elephant was born at the St. Louis Zoo, and officials decided to put the name to a vote … one of the five names the public can vote for is Harper.

One vindictive Nats fan has dedicated a Twitter account to spreading the word about the contest, as he should:

Voting ends Sunday, May 5, and the winning name will be announced the following afternoon.

Vote here.

Asian elephants can live for up to 60 years, by the way. What’s say you give this little gal some #Natitude.
