That will take down a coyote and it is not a loud gun. Check your local ordinances to see if you can fire a pellet rifle on your own property though.
Here in Georgia, you do not even need a hunting permit to kill a coyote. And, there is no limit to how many you can put down - they are a nuisance animal and they kill everything.
The ones near me are the size of German Shepherds and can easily maul, maim, and kill an adult.

P.S. Since coyotes are nocturnal, make sure you have a backstop and know what you are shooting and what is behind it in case you miss. It takes a lot of skill.
I live in a condo and I would not be allowed to shoot a gun in our yard. I do not want to kill the coyote as it eat the wild rabbits and helps keep the number down. The rabbits are all over the yard pooping and eating the grass
and leaving bald spots on the lawn.
