Ferrets (in the wild) are eaten by numerous Birds of Prey as well as carnivorous mammals.

Domestic ferrets possible predators would be hawks, owls, or any larger carnivorous mammals would hunt them given the opportunity.

Black-footed ferrets face threats in the wild from predators which includes coyotes, great-horned owls, golden eagles, prairie falcons, badgers, bobcats and foxes

Wild ferrets could very well be prey for birds of prey.
