A dead bat found in the Lowes Hardware Store in Midland has authorities sending out a warning Thursday afternoon.  

If you came into contact with that bat, get to a doctor.  

The bat was found earlier this week by Midland Animal Control, and it tested positive for rabies.  

Authorities are asking anyone who may have either touched the bat or come in contact with it to go to the doctor as soon as possible.  

They don't know how long the bat was in the building.
