Technically. For a network there is gear that can do it. Radware among one of them and the one we use via our carrier and it works. An effective defense has to have a larger pipe somewhere with mitigation services at a capacity well above your capacity.
I don’t think the CAPTCHA would work, the person just calls and calls tying up the available trunks. You’d need the CAPTCHA to be on the attacker’s end. Based on the description I got they aren’t caring about an answer they are essentially just trying to keep the lines always busy.

How does one stop a DoS attack on a network? Or on anything for that matter? Say you were attending a protest, and someone is blowing an air horn in your ear<https://youtu.be/cvAMkDGKelQ?t=80>? What can you do? Technically, you could front end the whole thing with a captcha style gate, so you could ask to push a single button, button combination, or solve a simple addition problem resulting in two digits. granted, just like on the web, a captcha is burdensome to the user, but generally, it's preferable over the site being down, or disrupted. CUC and UCCX both could handle this task, though it would be easier in UCCX.

Some scammer has robo dialers setup and is flooding all of their trunks. He got a ransom, stopped and then started again. He was originally using one number and then when the telco blocked that switching to random sources. Are there are any legitimate defenses to this sort of thing?
