It comes just one week after footage of a woman carrying a decapitated head in Russia emerged online.
A nanny is believed to have severed the four-year-old girl’s head before taking it out onto the streets.
In Amsterdam, the gruesome find was also filmed before being posted to Liveleak.

Dutch media in the area reports a box was placed on its side and the head was positioned so it looked in through the windows of the shisha cafe.
Police are investigating a possible link to a body found in a burning car this week.
The headless body was identified by his fingerprints as 23-year-old Nabil Amzieb – a man detectives confirmed was “known to police”.
It has been suggested the man was part of the Dutch capital’s Moroccan mafia.
Police have appealed for witnesses or anyone who may have information over the deceased man.
Amsterdam is currently in the throws of an increasingly violent war between rival Dutch drug gangs.
At least 16 people have died in the Netherlands, Belgium and Spain in related underworld killings since March 2012.
